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.

Memorial HeroBracelet letter from Arizona

 Here's a letter from Arizona. -------- Dear HeroBracelets, I want to say thanks for the memorial hero bracelets you sent me.  I had ordered one from another website last year and it was very thin and flimsy and didn't last for more than a couple months.

Getting HeroBracelets to every Texas family

Last year, we were contacted by a Marine here in Texas named Andrew Sullens. His goal was to write to every family in Texas who had lost a soldier or Marine in the Iraq and Afghanistan. It's taken him almost a year, but yesterday we received his box of letters. We had agreed then to send every family his letter and a pair of HeroBracelets in their son's or daughter's name. At the time of this writing, there are a total of 330 Texans that have been killed in the line of duty. We are now making...
