For the Mother Who Will Never See Her Son Again

Back in the 70's when I was in high school, I wore a bracelet bearing the name of a soldier KIA in Vietnam. I wore that bracelet for many years. I wanted to get another bracelet and I decided to order from your website.

I chose the name I did because the young man KIA on my bracelet is from my home state of North Carolina, and he was the same age as my son. I thought about that young man and his mother. His mother will never see her son again. He was just beginning his young life, but he chose to put it on the line so we may all continue to enjoy our freedom. As a mother, I can only imagine her heartache, but I am sure she feels much pride as well.

It is an honor for me to in turn honor a young man who laid down his life for all of us.
