For Sgt. Matejov, Sirius and Officer David Lim

I bought the POW bracelet as a replacement. I've had the same name with me for close to fifteen years now and when I was in Washington DC this past fall, I made a point to go see Sgt. Matejov's name on the Vietnam Memorial. These guys answered a call and should never be forgotten.

I chose Sirius to memorialize because of my deep love for animals and to honor both him and his handler, Officer David Lim. Officer Lim's committment to his partner and their story had a deep impact on me. I know people who perished in the attacks on 9/11 but carrying their names would have been too painful so instead I chose to honor both the officers whom the bracelet represents, one who died in service and one who continues to serve.
