For SFC James E. Thode

I wear a Memorial Bracelet for SFC James E. Thode of NM. He was a true NCO and leader of Soldiers. I served with him for two deployments and am honored to be able to say I knew him. May he rest in peace, and may his family feel comfort from God.

The strength of a wall is neither greater nor less than the courage of the men who defend it.
