As a child I wore a POW bracelet with James Bell on it for years. He was
from my small town in MD. When I married, I married a soldier. As a CPT
in the Army he went to Desert Shield/Storm for almost a year. I ordered
bracelets then and proudly wore one with his name to keep him closer while
he was away. As a COL he was assigned to the Pentagon. I'm pleased to say
he is a Pentagon survivor but many of his peers were not. Now as we're in
our 23rd year of military life, Bob will be joining our troops in Iraq in
January. I ordered them this time for the same reason as last time, just
as a reminder.
I'm pleased to know that your organization is making a difference. I've
lived it; my heart goes out to these folks. - Melissa O.
