I Appreciate What Our Brothers Do For America Overseas

I purchased the bracelet because being a new member in the armed services, I have really grown to appreciate what our brothers do for America overseas. I am currently a midshipman attending the United States Naval Academy. I hold a great sentimental value in the bracelet. It stands for much more than just a name engraved on metal. Although I still have time before I serve as an officer, I read about our troops everyday. It hits us close to home now that casualties have recently exceeded 1200 in Fallujah. So when I look at it, I am reminded of what I am working for. That is to be the best leader I can. Someday I will lead men like Lance Corporal Nice into combat. Beautiful work! Thank you.
