Several people have come forward wanting to buy bracelets for deployed troops and for families that have lost loved ones. Some amazing stories have come out of this in recent days.
For instance, Thursday, Dec 30th, we got an email from a Marine Captain wanting bracelets for the 60 Marines in his command to memorialize one of their own. A few minutes later, we got an email from a Marine Embassy Guard in the Dominican Republic who had heard about the project. We mentioned how great it would be if we could just send the Captain his bracelets. Well, she writes back shortly afterward to say she and her father have decided to buy the bracelets for the Captain and his Marines.
More of these stories are happening every day. We’d love to see more. We’d love to be able to send bracelets to every family member that has lost someone they loved.
We’ve had a lot of people want to send us money to help the project stay afloat. What we would like better, is for those wishing to donate to send their donation directly to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund or to offer to purchase bracelets for others.
If you would like to help, contact us and we’ll arrange it.

We got an email from a 2LT at Fort Hood. His unit lost 5 soldiers in the recent shootings. They are deploying to Iraq on December 5th.
He wanted to get 140 HeroBracelets honoring the lost soldiers. We set about getting the order together when a donor asked to cover the cost of all the bracelets. We informed 2LT Lopez that the bracelets were all covered and we’ll be delivering the bracelets to them this week for their deployment ceremony.
