For My Husband's Friend Andrew Killed by an IED

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember this post where I talked about a friend of my husband's being killed by an IED in Afghanistan.

I knew that my husband was very upset by this, so I wanted to do something special for him.

Since my husband was a Yuck (sophomore) at West Point, he has been wearing a Memorial Bracelet for a soldier who died in Iraq. He never knew the man, but he wore the bracelet every day. I am talking every day, like even to our wedding.

This sparked an idea in my head. I ordered him a bracelet for his friend Andrew. I knew he would be sad to stop wearing his old one, but that he would really appreciate having this new one. I was right. He hasn't taken it off since I gave it to him.

$2.00 from the sale of each bracelet is donated to charities that support the families of the heroes and victims of terrorism.
