The first I lost when I was Med-Evaced. Not a day will go by that I
will remember 20 June 2008. Some things you will never forget, and
some, no matter how hard you try, you can't forget every painful detail.
In the 1970's, we wore Prisoner of War (P.O.W.) bracelets. Today, we also keep others in our memories; Victims of Terrorism and Military Casualties. To keep the memory alive of those who have died at the hands of terrorists or fighting terrorism, we now also wear Memorial Bracelets. People from all over the country are wearing bracelets from Memorial Bracelets located at www.memorialbracelets.com for their own very personal reasons. Below are some of the stories that we have received.
I wear my Memorial Bracelet for my fallen comrade Cpl. Richard Bennett who paid the ultimate sacrifice while flying on an AH-1W SuperCobra he was testing during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2006. Misfit 42, we will never forget you "Lonewolf".
