To Memorialize a Marine

I chose to purchase a Memorial Bracelet for a Marine that was killed in Afghanistan. I served in the Marines from 1993-1997. I was moved by a PBS special about the War on Terror and how it affected military members coming home. I already know about the affects, but to hear the stories of the two wars going on right now and the PTSd that a lot of military personnel are coming home with is staggering. I wish I could do more and help every family who has lost someone in the war going on right now. I will remember the Marine that I chose to memoralize on my arm and remember him every time someone asks me what my bracelet is. Maybe that will encourage someone else to donate money or time to help out in their own way.
