The bracelet is great. I had one years ago that I bought on base in Colorado and it finally got worn out and broke. I have been trying to replace it for awhile now but just never thought of the Internet as an option, finally one day it dawned on me and I found your site.
I Googled POW bracelets and found your site listed there. I went through many of the available links and decided that your site was the option for me, with your own donations to various support organizations and with the ability to choose who and what gets put on the bracelet, all that and the price is great.
I ordered a Memorial Bracelet because I myself am a veteran and my father is a Vietnam veteran. I have been out of the military for about four years now but have never lost the drive to support our troops and all those who came before, the fact that we still have POW and MIA's in so many countries is something that the general public either has no idea about or fails to acknowledge. If my bracelet gets the attention of one person and I have the opportunity to tell them about our troops and the services they give happily without any gripes or complaints then I feel like I have continued my support.
I ordered a MIA bracelet for a soldier in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Why? My husband, Matt, is active duty Army and was in one of the first Army units on the ground in Operation Iraqi Freedom. My husband is a Combat Medic and was one of the very people that saved soldiers' lives during the first year of Iraqi Freedom. He has been back twice since then. I am extremely proud of my husband and what he has done for our family, community and country. I also am proud of all of the soldiers from all the forces who have sacrificed so much for all of us in this country! Fortunately, my husband has came home safe and sound each time. I am thank God daily for that. I cannot imagine what the family of the missing soldiers must be going through and if I can keep this soldier and his family close to my heart and think about and pray for him daily by wearing this bracelet, then that is the least I can do to honor a solider!

I wear this Memorial Bracelet for SSgt Walrod "The Doc" he was a good friend of mine. He was the IDMT while I was deployed on a humanitarian mission in Central America. SSgt Walrod treated me personally. I was stung by a scorpion (about 1 1/2 inches long) and spent 2 days in the hospital. When it initially happened he was there and took care of me and rushed me to the hospital before the reaction to the sting closed off my airway. I got to the hospital and received the anti venom and everything was fine. It was just hard to breath for a while and hurt a little. SSgt Walrod was killed while off base providing medical care. He was struck head on by a oncoming semi. I posted the link about him at the bottom if you would like to know more. Thanks again for everything.
