To Remember My Vietnam POW and My Brother

Recently, I visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial, to pay my respects - this was an event that profoundly affected me when it happened, so my visit was very emotional.  
One of the exhibits honoring the FDNY and 9-11 displayed a Memorial Bracelet in memory of a firefighter.  This was also an event that affected me profoundly, so I went searching on the Internet to see if I could find bracelets I could order...  years ago, as a teenager, I wore a POW bracelet to honor a missing soldier...  I have lost the bracelet over the years, but never forgot my soldier.

I was thrilled to find your website...  I think this is a wonderful way to honor and remember special people in our lives, whether it is a soldier, a firefighter or a loved one.  I wish my arms were longer, so I could wear more bracelets.  
My original order was for 2 bracelets...  one to honor victims of terrorism and one in support of our troops...  the next night, I re-visited the site, and found the option to order a Vietnam POW bracelet, and found my original soldier...  so I ordered a new bracelet to honor him.   At the same time, I also ordered bracelets in memory of my brother, who died in 2004 to give to another brother and my nephews.
