For a KIA Friend of Mine

When I was in Basic Training in San Antonio I ordered a bracelet with the name of a friend of mine that was KIA.  I wore that bracelet the 5 years I stayed in the service and rarely removed.  After I got out I gave the bracelet to my friends mom.  That was 12 years ago.  My friend is buried in the same graveyard as my brother.  I know my brother would be proud I wore this bracelet with such respect that was deserved for this hero.  I have wondered for years how to go about getting one and did some google searches and low and behold I now have my Memorial Bracelet on its way.  I am so excited to continue honering my friend and those who have sacraficed so much.  I even ordered one for my friends brother that will hopefully get passed down to his kids to remember the uncle they never got to meet.

Could you please tell me where you ordered it from? I have just lost a close friend in Afghanistan this past week and would like to honor him in the same way. Thank you.
