In Memory Of My Cousin Killed In South Vietnam

I ordered this bracelet in memory of my cousin killed in South Vietnam. My daughter had a project in school to interview a vet about his/her experience. We told the history of Kyle J Coles from a letter written by his friend to Kyles mother shortly after his death. The letter told of how Kyle had volunteered to take his friends spot on a mission to deliver supplies to Marines. Kyle's helicopter was hit by an NVA rocket propelled grenade. Kyle and the crew were all killed. Our family thought in remembrance of Kyle and Veterans Day we would order the bracelet to remind us of the sacrifices made by our military and their families.

Thanks again the bracelet!
