To Remember Why Aaron's Death was Not in Vain

In February 2003, my husband's National Guard unit was deployed. The spent until the end of May in Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, then travelled overseas and remained there until April 2004. November 29, 2003, the convoy my husband and 3 of our best friends (among others) were travelling in was ambushed. The two youngest of the four friends were riding together and their truck was hit. Aaron was killed, he was 22, Joe was injured. I purchased these bracelets in memory of Aaron and so that we will always remember the events that led to this war and will always remember why Aaron's death was not in vain.
