For Scott Speicher

I am a member of Rolling Thunder NC1 and I’m retired Air Force, and originally I thought of getting a POW-MIA bracelet with an Air Force member’s info from the Vietnam War.  However, when I found your site and saw what you had to offer I thought to myself, why not honor someone from the war I was a part of.  You see, I entered the service in 1980, and my unit was based in Oman during Desert Shield & Storm.  And that is why I chose to have Scott Speicher’s info on my Memorial Bracelet.

For Her Former Classmate KIA

My daughter is in JROTC at Rossview High School in Clarksville, TN.  Her step-father is active duty Army serving his 4th deployment (2 for OIF and now 2 for OEF).  When she learned that the classmate who's picture is painted on a wall in her school had been killed in action, she said she wanted a bracelet for him. 
Her goals are to graduate with Distiguished Honors, join the Army and make a differnce in the world, just like SPC Joshua L Plocica.


For My Cousin's Husband Killed in Iraq

My cousin's husband was killed in an IED Explosion in Iraq a little over a year ago.  His son was only a few months old when he left.  He was a great friend, son, brother, husband and father.  His legacy will not be forgotten.

For A Vietnam Scout Dog Handler

I love the Memorial Bracelet. It's beautiful.  I ordered the bracelet because the soldier who's name is engraved on it was a scout dog handler in Vietnam. He and his scout dog were both killed in Dinh Tuong. I am a German Shepherd lover and am very interested in their use as war dogs, particularly in the Vietnam war. I choose this particular soldier as a way to honor a dog handler who along with his dog was killed in action.

Thank you,


To Honor One of Many That Gave The Ultimate Sacrifice

Thank you for helping me honor one of many that have gave the ultimate sacrifice in serving their country.  You will never know how much you have helped a veteran try to get through something what has at time engulfed their life.  This Memorial Bracelet will not bring back the Lt., however it does somewhat start to heal a wound that the VA has been trying to do. 

Thank you and God Bless.

For our Daughter Who Received a Naval ROTC Scholarship

I purchased the customized bracelet for our daughter who has just begun college on a Naval ROTC scholarship. She hopes to become a Naval Aviator and fly fighter jets just as Capt. Michael S. Speicher did.

Our daughter was not even two months old when the Gulf War began in 1991. We watched the television accounts on CNN while holding, feeding, and rocking her to sleep. We did not know on that first night of the war, in the midst of dozens of successful sorties by the Navy, that then LCDR Speicher had been lost. We did not know that night that our infant daughter would one day feel called to serve our country in the Navy.

My hope is that wearing this bracelet will serve several purposes. When she grows weary of her studies, may it help her to restore her strength. If she gets distracted, that it direct her focus back toward her goal. I hope that it will keep foremost in her mind her wellspring of respect and admiration for those who have served before her and that she honor their sacrifices by pursuing this path with courage and commitment. I hope it provides inspiration to her and her fellow midshipmen and remind them that their mere willingness to serve is one of the most powerful deterrents against our enemies' efforts to destroy our great country. May it be a reminder that we never leave any one of our soldiers, sailors or marines behind and to spare no effort or resource to bring them back home. And, may it remind her to say the occasional prayer to God to send comfort to the family of Capt. Speicher.

In Memory of Fellow Marine Dion Stephenson

The Memorial Bracelet I ordered was in memory of Dion Stephenson who I served with in the Marines. He was KIA in Desert Storm. Dion and I were like brothers. He was only about 50 yards from my position when the vehicle he was in blew up. It's hard enough to lose a family member, but it is harder to lose someone who you have experienced things with that most people will never experience nor understand. My ordering a bracelet is my way of ensuring that my fellow Marine, and brother, will never be forgotten.

For My Sister that Passed Away in 2005

I have not yet received my bracelet, but I will wear it proudly everyday for my sister. She passed away in 2005 from a battle with lung disease. She is my only sibling. I miss her each and every day. She was my best friend. Her life was different then mine.. but she never complained. She loved her kids and lived each day for them. She was a very strong women and brave. She now has 2 beautiful grand babies.. (i have none!!) and I will make sure they never forget her. I just want to wear her name proudly and be able to tell everyone about her.

thank you,


To Always Remember Sgt. Kiser

I ordered Memorial Bracelets for both my husband and I.  We met when he was activated as an army national guard soldier and I was a civilian contractor.  We were both working soldier readiness processing for those going to Iraq.  We had been think of getting these bracelets for a while since we met so many men and women who deployed for our country.  We chose one soldier in particular,  Army Sgt. Timothy Craig Kiser assigned to the Army National Guard's 340th Forward Support Battalion, 40th Infantry Division.  My husband had originally been given orders to deploy and for reasons only the man up stairs knows, this soldier went instead.  We had spent time with him in the months prior to his deployment.  He went to Iraq in January and we found out he was KIA in May, just 5 month later.  To this day, I believe everything happens for a reason and I wanted these bracelets to always remember Sgt. Kiser and all of the other men and women who have given their lives for us and our country.

For my Fiance on the 31st MEU

I ordered my Memorial Bracelet to wear while my fiance is away on the 31st MEU. I love him and I wanted a way to honor what he is doing and to remind me to always have faith in what he is doing. I was told about this website by my best friend who lost a member if his unit to an IED in Iraq. He told me that you guys did a good job. 

Thank You.

To Honor My Brother Who Served in Vietnam

I love my Memorial Bracelet, thank you! 
I was just looking for a way to honor my brother who served in Vietnam. 25 years after coming home he couldn't take the memories anymore & took his own life. He was my brother, my friend & my hero. He was there for me when my parents weren't able/willing & I miss his influence in my life. My children know about him but I wish it could've been first hand, not just through stories from me. 
Well, probably more than you wanted to know but just wanted to let you know that your product offers comfort. 
Thank you, Susan

To Remind Me Of What I Am Here To Do

I wear my bracelet to remind myself everyday of what I am here to do while my fellow brothers and sisters are over there doing what they’re supposed to do.  

One team, one fight!

Regardless of what the media shows and politicians scream , we are doing good, and doing what is right; not for us, but for those who desperately need the help. I am grateful for those of whom I know, and even those of which I don’t know and the sacrifices they and their supportive families make everyday. THAT is why I wear the bracelet, “Until they all come home. OIF & OEF”. 

Thank you!

For the Special Person I Lost in Iraq

Thank You so much! I think my Memorial Bracelet is amazing. I found out about your site from a great friend of mine that has served in Iraq and wears 2 himself displaying the names of his friends. I ordered my bracelet because the friend that I lost to the war in Iraq was such a special person. He was loved by so many people, he was just an amazing friend and father that I wanted to make sure that I remember him everyday and to let others know how great he was as well.
