Remembering SGT Gomez and SFC Herlem.

Tags: HeroStories

My husband and I wear our Hero Bracelets in honor of two of his fallen comrades.  SFC Bryant Herlem and SGT Jose Gomez who were killed in Iraq on April 18, 2006.  We know that they will forever be in our hearts but we wanted a visible reminder of their sacrifice.  Shortly after they were killed I wanted to do something for their fellow soldiers still serving so we purchased these bracelets to give to their team as a simple reminder.  Many still wear them daily.  It's a small tribute with lots of meaning.  We won't ever forget these two amazing men.
