To Remember the Sacrifices Others Have Made

I like the Memorial Bracelet and will wear it daily.  My son has a similar one with the name of the brother of his friend. 

My youngest son served in Iraq November 2003 to October 2004 with 3/2 SBCT.  I frequent a support forum for friends and family of the various Stryker Brigade Combat Teams.  I have come to know Chase's mother through that.  She no longer has her son here with her... I have my son back.  She continues to be an inspiration to those families/friends who have soldiers serving now.  My second son went to Afghanistan from February 2006 - January 2007 with the National Guard.  Both boys are in the National Guard now and are willing to go to war again.  

I don't want to forget the sacrifices other families have made ensuring my freedoms.  If anything happens to my sons, I don't want them forgotten either.
