More Than Just a Bracelet

“I am an on the road Law Enforcement Sales manager for a distributor out of NY. I am also a Vet. Last night I was on the road in Kokomo, Indiana. I went out for dinner and while setting at the bar a man and a woman came in and set next to me. There really was very little conversation but a little chit chat stuff. Anyway the man got up to go to the restroom and his wife looked at my bracelet and said that her son had sent her directions how to make them but she had lost them. I said why don’t you ask him to send them again. Then I saw the pain in her face and the tears started flowing. She lost her son in Afghanistan.

I looked at her and said I am so sorry for you loss, but Thank You for your sacrifice. I then took the bracelet off of my arm and handed it to her and said this is from a fellow vet, keep it. She looked at me as if I had given her a million dollars. I left never getting her name and actually I almost felt naked because I was not wearing the bracelet so I went out today and bought another and hopefully I don’t have to give it away again, but if I ever have to I will do it with pride.
Thanks for making a great product, and giving me the opportunity to give it to someone who really needed it.”
