I Never Want To Forget Almar

I purchased this bracelet in memory of my dear friend Almar. I met Almar at Officer Candidate School in the summer of 2004. During the first few weeks Almar and I butted heads. He thought I was being arrogant hard headed, and I thought he just hated working with a girl. After a few months we became great friends. After that summer we communicated over the phone and through emails. He was just a great person. We had great conversations about life and family. I found out about Almar death through an email my friend sent me. His death hit me hard. Of all the people I know that have been to Iraq, Almar is the only fallen Marine that I have personally know. I was and am still in disbelief that I am not going to be able to talk to him again. I never want to forget Almar.
