To Remember Lcpl. Frye as a Strong Marine Who Bravely Served Our Country

By the grace of God, my boyfriend, a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, has served three tours of duty in Iraq and has come home safely each time. I know he's one of the lucky ones. He's had very close calls, yet God delivered him safely back home.

I wanted a bracelet that would have meaning for me. Through a Marine Corps online board for wives, fiancées, and girlfriends, I met a young woman my age who also had a boyfriend in the Marines. However, he was called to a different home on 6 October 2005. Lcpl. Jason Frye is the name engraved on my bracelet. Lcpl. Frye was a strong Marine who bravely served our country. He gave his all, and he deserves to be recognized everyday for his efforts. The war has been fought for four years now, and I don't want anyone to forget about our men and women serving overseas. I want a daily reminder of the freedoms our military is protecting. I want people to ask me what my bracelet stands for, so I can proudly describe Lcpl. Frye and the sacrifices he's made for you and me. I am honored to wear such a bracelet.

God bless our troops.
Semper Fidelis.
