I purchased, and have chosen to wear this Memorial Bracelet in rememberance of SFC David J Todd. Although I did not know him, he did in fact touch my life. I am a soldier in the National Guard and I was deployed to Afghanistan from April 2008 to Dec 2008. I acted as a medic while deployed and during this time I, and several others from my platoon were called on to act as pallbearers for two of our fellow soldiers who had been killed earlier that day. One of these soldiers was SFC Todd. I acted as his pallbearer and escorted him onto the aircraft that carried him home. I will always consider it a great honor and privilage to have been able to do that for him and his family. That is why I have chosen to wear this bracelet.
