To Show the World our Solders are Important

Out of curiosity, I went to archived news of the area where the soldier I chose lived. It was heartbreaking to put a family, face and story to this bracelet, but at the same time an absolute honor! This soldier was only 18 and left behind a son he never saw. Every soldier is special and our hearts and prayers go out to them and their families. Thank you for an opportunity, through this bracelet, to show the world our soldiers are important and there is a name to each one rooted in our nation.

Thank you again. I wear this bracelet with pride, a deep sense of loss and a memory of the price our soldiers paid with their lives. How thankful I am for what they did and do for our freedom and the freedom of nations in trouble.

Warm thanks,
