I am a member of Rolling Thunder NC1 and I’m retired Air Force, and originally I thought of getting a POW-MIA bracelet with an Air Force member’s info from the Vietnam War. However, when I found your site and saw what you had to offer I thought to myself, why not honor someone from the war I was a part of. You see, I entered the service in 1980, and my unit was based in Oman during Desert Shield & Storm. And that is why I chose to have Scott Speicher’s info on my Memorial Bracelet.

I love the Memorial Bracelet. It's beautiful. I ordered the bracelet because the soldier who's name is engraved on it was a scout dog handler in Vietnam. He and his scout dog were both killed in Dinh Tuong. I am a German Shepherd lover and am very interested in their use as war dogs, particularly in the Vietnam war. I choose this particular soldier as a way to honor a dog handler who along with his dog was killed in action.Thank you,Tammy
Thank you for helping me honor one of many that have gave the ultimate sacrifice in serving their country. You will never know how much you have helped a veteran try to get through something what has at time engulfed their life. This Memorial Bracelet will not bring back the Lt., however it does somewhat start to heal a wound that the VA has been trying to do.
Thank you and God Bless.

Our daughter was not even two months old when the Gulf War began in 1991. We watched the television accounts on CNN while holding, feeding, and rocking her to sleep. We did not know on that first night of the war, in the midst of dozens of successful sorties by the Navy, that then LCDR Speicher had been lost. We did not know that night that our infant daughter would one day feel called to serve our country in the Navy.
My hope is that wearing this bracelet will serve several purposes. When she grows weary of her studies, may it help her to restore her strength. If she gets distracted, that it direct her focus back toward her goal. I hope that it will keep foremost in her mind her wellspring of respect and admiration for those who have served before her and that she honor their sacrifices by pursuing this path with courage and commitment. I hope it provides inspiration to her and her fellow midshipmen and remind them that their mere willingness to serve is one of the most powerful deterrents against our enemies' efforts to destroy our great country. May it be a reminder that we never leave any one of our soldiers, sailors or marines behind and to spare no effort or resource to bring them back home. And, may it remind her to say the occasional prayer to God to send comfort to the family of Capt. Speicher.

The Memorial Bracelet I ordered was in memory of Dion Stephenson who I served with in the Marines. He was KIA in Desert Storm. Dion and I were like brothers. He was only about 50 yards from my position when the vehicle he was in blew up. It's hard enough to lose a family member, but it is harder to lose someone who you have experienced things with that most people will never experience nor understand. My ordering a bracelet is my way of ensuring that my fellow Marine, and brother, will never be forgotten.

I have not yet received my bracelet, but I will wear it proudly everyday for my sister. She passed away in 2005 from a battle with lung disease. She is my only sibling. I miss her each and every day. She was my best friend. Her life was different then mine.. but she never complained. She loved her kids and lived each day for them. She was a very strong women and brave. She now has 2 beautiful grand babies.. (i have none!!) and I will make sure they never forget her. I just want to wear her name proudly and be able to tell everyone about her.

I love my Memorial Bracelet, thank you!
I was just looking for a way to honor my brother who served in Vietnam. 25 years after coming home he couldn't take the memories anymore & took his own life. He was my brother, my friend & my hero. He was there for me when my parents weren't able/willing & I miss his influence in my life. My children know about him but I wish it could've been first hand, not just through stories from me.
Well, probably more than you wanted to know but just wanted to let you know that your product offers comfort.
Thank you, Susan
I wear my bracelet to remind myself everyday of what I am here to do while my fellow brothers and sisters are over there doing what they’re supposed to do.
One team, one fight!
Regardless of what the media shows and politicians scream , we are doing good, and doing what is right; not for us, but for those who desperately need the help. I am grateful for those of whom I know, and even those of which I don’t know and the sacrifices they and their supportive families make everyday. THAT is why I wear the bracelet, “Until they all come home. OIF & OEF”.
