For The Only Married Gunner In Our Convoy

My unit, Cco 1/4 INF. was deployed to Afghanistan in July 06. We were ex-filtrating an area we had occupied and the only way out was a road running through a narrow valley. On the push through the valley we were ambushed with heavy small arms fire and RPG. We were in Humvee so the gunners immediately returned fire, in all this our friend was fatally wounded. The only married gunner in our convoy of 8 vehicles was hit. I had these bracelets made to honor him and remember him.
