For Trent Groves

My name is Charles. I serve in the United States Air Force and am currently deployed. When I got to my deployed location I saw a few friends from my technical training. One of them being a1c Trent Groves pretty funny guy easy to get along with well he left our deployed location to go back to dover afb and he was with some friends on new years eve and was involved in a vehicle accident which killed him and another person and injuring 1. 

The Memorial Bracelet serves as a reminder that life is fragile and wars arent always fought away from home they are also fought at home whether it may be anger towards family and friends, temptations. It could be as simple as saying hello to one who is thinking about suicide and you could be that person to bring them out of their depression with that simple comment numerous things qualify to this. I havent had contact with him after I saw him at our location but he is my brother in arms he is a defender of this nation.  He serves as an icon of will power/motivation/ to get moving on in life to excel in all areas and aspects, to learn something new everyday this is what he would of wanted and I will give it my all to do as he wished for myself and will pay it forward to those persons that feel they stand alone.
