For SSG Samuel J. Helfenstine

I received my Memorial Bracelet yesterday and immediately put it
on. It reads: SSG Samuel J. Helfenstine USA 10 Jan 1968 SVN.
We both went to Vietnam within days of each other in June of
1967 but to different units. He was and still is my best friend. I
wasn't told of his death until a few days before my tour was over,
much too late to sign on for another tour of duty. I think about
him often and regret I wasn't with him when he died. He lives on
in my memory today. May he rest in peace and may we meet

For Michael D. White

I ordered 2 bracelets from Memorial Bracelets in memory of Michael D White. One is for his sister who told me a lot about Michael because I was to young to really remember him. I wish I knew him because I heard he was a really great man. RIP Michael.

for Army Specialist Dale J. Kridlo

I ordered my bracelet from Memorial Bracelets for Army Specialist Dale J. Kridlo.  He was 33 when he was killed in action in Kunar Province of Afghanistan on November 7, 2010 when insurgents attacked his unit with small arms fire.  He had been in Afghanistan since December, 2009 and was scheduled to return home just before Christmas, 2010.
