My 26th birthday was around the corner and my mother asked me what I wanted. I told her a Memorial Bracelet. It was something I always wanted, but unfortantly couldn't afford on my own. So I thought this was the perfect time to be able to get one. I remember as a child my Mother always wore one and I said when I was bigger, that I would wear one too. When my Mother asked me which one I would like, I picked a young 23 year old army PFC by the name Bowe Bergdahl. He is a POW in AFGHANISTAN. I was very specific on his name. My mother asked me why him and I told her I did research on him and his story broke my heart. And I wanted some one from my "generations war". So now my Mother, who lives in Mass, wears the same one as I do. I live in Jacksonville, NC (there is a big Marine Corps base down here). I have a brother in the Army National Guard. My husband served 4 years in the USMC. We are a military family w/ many friends in different branches. I can't tell you how much my heart goes out to all the familys and to the men and women who serve our country I am so proud to be an american and even prouder to be able to say it freely.
Thanks to all and god bless....
