To have a physical reminder of my son in Iraq

I received my first of 2 bracelets ordered & I am overwhelmed. My son, Sgt. Robert Hall is in the 3rd Infantry in Iraq. I am having a very difficult time & am doing all I can to have a physical reminder of him with me every minute of every day. I absolutely love my bracelet & will wear & show it proudly until his safe return home.

The 2nd one is for his new wife he married just 5 weeks before being deployed. He was stationed overseas & married in the Philippines so we are going through the INS process to get her here. She of course misses him terribly. I had been wanting to get her a special little gift of some kind & when I learned of your site through a friend at work who had gotten a bracelet for one of the 911 victims. I immediately went to your site to order.

For My Brother

Although it will make me a little sad everytime someone asks me about it, I will wear it proudly to honor my brother. I think it was a wonderful idea to come up with V.O.T. bracelets similar to the P.O.W. bracelets so that people are always aware that those we love & miss will not be forgotten, nor will what happened to them. - Sharon S.

To Remember the 9/11 Victims and their Families

My reason for purchasing my Sept. 11, 2001 bracelet is because I was directly involved with the incident. I'm an Emergency Medical Technician in NJ and spent quite a few tiring days in New York City as well as in Jersey City along the shore line helping those that were in the city be transported to NJ by boat. This is my way of remembering the victims and their families who are still trying to cope with the awful tragedy of that day.

To Show Tribute to the Victims of 9/11/01

I wanted something to commemorate those that lost their lives on 9/11/01.  But I did not want to just commemorate just one of the many horrible things that happened that day.  I was especially affected because I too was on a plane traveling back to Dallas when the first plane struck the WTC.  It could have easily been the plane that I was on that was hijacked.  My heart goes out to everyone that lost their lives that day and their families. Thank you for providing a way for me to show tribute to the victims of 9/11/01.

For the Sacrifices of the Military Protecting Us

I ordered the bracelet for my 10 year old granddaughter to let her realize that these are our military protecting us so that she can grow up in a free country and they are the ones protecting the rights of people of all nations. And POW'S give up their freedom for us.
