Why I wear a HeroBracelet memorial bracelet.

I’ve never had a family member in the military. Nor do I personally know anyone currently serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. But I wear a HeroBracelet memorial bracelet in the name of young Marine from California. I never knew him or his family. But he died serving a country that has given me much. I just want others to know about him. People ask me about my memorial bracelet often and I tell them what I know about this young Marine.

I encourage others to wear a memorial bracelet to honor these brave men and women. We, as a nation cannot afford to forget any of them.
