To Never Forget the Damage that War can do

I have had a POW bracelet since my brother was in the Vietnam war. I still wear it and this new bracelet will join it on my wrist. I chose the man on my KIA bracelet because he is from my home state of Illinois and was killed on my birthday. Each year as I celebrate my birthday, I will celebrate this man’s life and all the others whose lives were sacrificed in a land so far from home. I truly believe that we must never forget the damage that war can do, not only to a country, but personally, to us all.
