To Show My Support for Our Troops

I ordered the MIA bracelet for Sgt. Edward J. Anguiano.  The bracelet is great!  I located your site while doing a search on adopting a soldier for my second grade class to write to.  There are so many reasons why I decided to order it.  

My family has a very large military history, including my grandfather who fought in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.  My brother was in the ARMY for four years as well, and my father served in the National Guard.  My brother had a POW bracelet from Vietnam, which I thought was a really neat thing.  

I decided to order one from Operation Iraqi Freedom in order to show my support for our troops.  I saw how hard it was for soldiers to return home from war after Vietnam, and I wanted these soldiers to know just how much support they had from the people back home.  Most of the time all that was televised were war protestors, and you hardly ever hear stories of those who support the soldiers, so I thought it would be a great way to show my support for the men fighting in Iraq.  Sgt. Anguiano is from Texas as well, and that's how I got his name.   I will proudly wear it until everyone returns home that is missing and I am able to return it to either Sgt. Anguiano or his family.
