Because I Feel Good Doing This For Our Country
I received my bracelet today and can't believe how wonderful it is....it is already on my left wrist with a bracelet that I have been wearing since the Viet Nam war....a Lt. Col. L. W. Whitford, missing since 11/2/69. I keep wearing it because I checked on him and he was in a helicopter with another soldier and the copter went down and the bodies were never found. So until......I will wear it. The one I just had made is for a SFC Eric Horton, I went onto Operation Military and they gave me him as a penpal. We have been writing for 3 months and he is on his 3ed deployment and will wear until he is home safe....he is due to come home in Feb. but he keeps getting extended. I have sent him 3 huge boxes, one with a CD,DVD,VCR player in it. My father was a 35 year veteran of the Army and retired as a Brig. General and I feel good doing this for our country.
