We Honor Him By Wearing This Bracelet

The 11th ACR had not been deployed since Vietnam in the 60s. It was a big deal to be deployed from the NTC which concentrates strictly on training units on todays urban warfare scenarios. Now we were put to the test. Unfortunately on 24 May 2005, we lost a great soldier and friend, SFC Randy Collins. I remember seeing him at dinner, then shortly after our FOB was attacked by mortars. He unfortanetly was hit and did not make it. So we honored him by wearing this bracelet. To show that we care and miss him.
