In Memory of SSG Zachary Tomczak

My mom wears a POW bracelet every day for a missing soldier named David Hrdlicka from 1965 who was shot down over Laos.  She was in contact with his brother Leo until Leo passed away. She also wore one for William Means who had been in a POW camp for 5 years until he was released in 1972.
I ordered a Memorial Bracelet for my son and myself in Memory of SSG Zachary Tomczak (pictured) who was killed in Iraq Sep 25, 2007.  My son, who is currently serving in Iraq, was on a detail with Tomczak when he died.  Tomczak was his team leader and friend and it affected my son greatly.  I wanted my son and I to have a way to honor the sacrifice the Tomczak made for all of us.  

Thank you for giving us a way to do that.
