For My Grandson PFC Brian R. Bates Jr.

I have ordered the Memorial Bracelets to wear in honor of my Grandson PFC Brian R. Bates, Jr. who was killed in action in Afghanistan on October 27, 2009. He leaves behind a wife and 2 beautiful children who will never know what their father did for them and all Americans to keep us free. Brian has received the Bronze Metal of Honor and the Purple Heart along with numerous other medals and awards. He will never be forgotten.

Bless you, I hope you are mistaken - I hope everyday people remind Brian's children their daddy is a hero, and now he is an angel watching over them and keeping them safe.

I was with your grandson in Afghanistan. When I got back from that deployment I got a band to honor him, I still have that band to this day. Not a day goes by that I don't think about Brian.
