I knew that my husband was very upset by this, so I wanted to do something special for him.
Since my husband was a Yuck (sophomore) at West Point, he has been wearing a Memorial Bracelet for a soldier who died in Iraq. He never knew the man, but he wore the bracelet every day. I am talking every day, like even to our wedding.
This sparked an idea in my head. I ordered him a bracelet for his friend Andrew. I knew he would be sad to stop wearing his old one, but that he would really appreciate having this new one. I was right. He hasn't taken it off since I gave it to him.
