For The Team Mate Lost to a Road Side Bomb

My name is Vincent. On Oct. 20 2006 I lost one of my team mates to a road side bomb in Iraq. He and I served together with a deployment to Afghanistan 02-03 and Iraq 03-04. He was a brother to me. One will never know the bond we had until they know combat in a spec. ops. unit.  He left behind a wife and infant son who I and my wife were also very close to. It was one of the hardest things I have ever been threw. For the next year and a half I thought about him every day. I would continuously write and call his wife. Oct. 20 2008 I forgot to call his wife! Slowly the pain started to ease of his death and before I knew it a day would go buy that I wouldn't think about him. A day turned to two days and then three and then every once and a while. Then I forgot his death anniversary! I felt horrible. I made a promise to myself and God that I would never forget again! That's why I came to this web sight. I want a Memorial Bracelet to remember my brother and never again forget. Thank you for what you do. May God be with you and your company.
Attached is a picture of my team and I.
