Thanks! My bracelet arrived today, just in time for Christmas.
The bracelet is great - super quality, with nice clear engraving.
I ordered this bracelet (LtCol Max Galeai, USMC KIA in Iraq) because Max was a good friend I'd served with twice before -- in Hawaii and Okinawa, Japan. I'm also a USMC LtCol, and want to remember Max on a daily basis. He left behind a wonderful wife and four kids. He was blown up by a suicide bomber while meeting with a dozen tribal shieks in Al Anbar province - the ones who turned the tide in favor of good over evil. Max was a part of that effort. They trusted him, and he they. The terrorists trusted neither, and while they may have massacred a number of noble men (both American and Iraqi), they were unable to kill the idea these men stood for. Max died a hero, and I want to remember him daily for it.
