Last summer in June we buried both of my older brothers who were killed in the line of duty. They were in the USMC. During their deployment they had each gotten separate care packages from a family friend of ours, and both of them had the Survival Strap bracelets in them. The boys kept telling me about how awesome they were and how they were so excited that the straps matched their uniforms. They decided that they were going to make sure that I got one just like theirs when they got home. That way no matter what I'd always have something to remind me of them. Well when I got news that they weren't coming home the bracelets were the last thing on my mind.
Eventually time passed and I was able to start looking through their personal effects when I was home visiting from college. While going through their things I found both of their survival straps. I keep them with me on my keys (as they are far to big for me to wear) because for me they are exactly what they wanted the survival straps to be- a constant reminder of them. I want to say thank you so much to all of those who support our troops over seas because they really do need it. I especially want to thank Survival Straps for being an organization that supports our troops, it's because of your product I have something that I can always keep with me that was a big part of my brother's lives, they never went anywhere with out their straps. They always had them with them "just in case." To most people it's just a cool bracelet but to me they symbolize a lifetime of memories. Thank you.
