For an American Hero

The reason I ordered and wear a Memorial Bracelet is for the Hero on the bracelet. I had met the Hero some time before following an IED blast for another Hero. We would see each other around the FOB and even share a meal and small talk. Unfortunately, I had the honor to respond as the Medevac flight-medic that day and be with him until the end holding his hand. I see him every time I close my eyes.
