To Remind Me That My Place is With My Fellow Soldiers
I just ordered Memorial Bracelets for myself and my husband--I've been wearing another bracelet since 2005. I was WIA in Iraq in June 2005 as an Air Force K9 Handler. My medic from Iraq is now my husband. I regret every day that I was retired due to my injuries. I would give anything to be back there and will always feel that I didn't fulfill my mission. My injuries were life-threatening as I had an IED go off underneath my seat in my vehicle, but I lived. I'll never know why I did yet so many others didn't. I will always feel that my place is there with my fellow soldiers and I want to go back but I know I never will. That is why I will always wear my Memorial Bracelet.
