HEROBRACELET FOUND IN STRAWBERRY PATCH
The note addressed to his parents, Barbara and David read:
'Forever thinning the strawberry patch in my backyard. I came upon this hard object, dirt covered, & scorched.
'Upon further investigation & scrubbing off of dirt, I found this memorative bracelet for your son Jonathan. How it came to be in my strawberry patch in Saint Paul, Minnesota is beyond me. Perhaps the compost from our city?
'Anyway, my strawberry patch now has a name & forever shall be known as Jonathan's Patch.
'Thanks for sharing such a little bit of your son's valiant life. Found his story & your names via the wire. Thinking of you, all best to your family - Annette.
'P.S. Those strawberries are fantastic!'
Barbara Rozier told ABC 13 that she doesn't remember ever seeing the bracelet.
Rozier said she wants to keep Annette's last name anonymous until she's able to personally speak with her.
Barbara Rozier (pictured) is hoping someone out there can help solve the mystery, but she believes there's a possibility that it might be a more generic bracelet for fallen soldiers because the bracelet lists him as a second lieutenant when he was promoted to first lieutenant before he died
She also told the station that she doesn't know who would've been wearing it.Rozier said the family remains optimistic and thinks the bracelet's owner is a fellow Army comrade, or a friend from college. Jonathan Rozier is pictured in January 2003
Rozier said her family doesn't know anybody in Minnesota but she 'would love to know the story behind the bracelet'.
'I unwrapped the package. It was his name, rank, Katy, Texas, Army, and the date he was killed.'
Rozier is hoping someone out there can help solve the mystery, but she believes there's a possibility that it might be a more generic bracelet for fallen soldiers.
She told Good Morning America that the bracelet still has him listed as a second lieutenant despite his promotion to first lieutenant while serving in Iraq where he was killed.
The bracelet is also emblazoned with herobracelets.org, but Rozier said she hasn't tried contacting the company who produced it directly because she doesn't think 'they'd have a specific record of it'.
But the family remains optimistic and thinks the bracelet's owner is a fellow Army comrade, or a friend from college.
