As A Constant Reminder

I bought the bracelet because I am in the Armed Forces. I wore a POW bracelet everyday for many years, but I am not from the Vietnam era and that was not my war to fight. We must never forget the brave men and women who fought the Vietnam War and I think we must continue to try to account for the missing. However, for me, I needed to connect myself with the War on Terrorism.

The events of Sept 11, 2001 were life changing for many people, myself included. I wear my bracelet to remind me why I go to work everyday. It is a constant reminder of the War on Terrorism and a solemn reminder of how easily life can be taken away. I will wear my bracelet everyday, with pride, just as I wear my uniform. Thanks for your service, it is a great reminder, and a great way to honor those that died on Sept 11, 2001. We must never forget!
