For PO2 Brian K. Joplin

I ordered a Memorial Bracelet in the name of PO2 Brian K. Joplin.  I never knew Brian.  His name was selected semi-randomly.  I knew I wanted someone who had been in the Navy and was from Oklahoma.  I noticed that the date he died was the same date as my son's birthday (October 4).  Imagine my surprise when I checked and saw his first name was Brian, which is also my son's name.  It is my great honor to wear this bracelet in his memory.  I will tell anyone and everyone about Brian and how he died in Afghanistan and let them know how they, too, can show their support.  Thanks for the opportunity.
