I purchased it for my daughter and she is proud to wear it. (she is 14 year old middle school student) It is very nice. I was looking for a bracelet like what were worn during the Vietnam War time for POWs. I was trying to show her and explain about them when she said she wanted one. She wore it to school today and everyone wanted to know where she got it and told her how much they like it. It is so hard for children to understand war, it is a very scary time for them, and maybe to understand even a part of caring for others who are helping us to be a safe and free nation is something. - Carol L.
