Jim BrockJames ‘Jim’ Brock  

MOS:  32854 Avionics Inertial, Radar and Bomb Navigation
Unit: 463rd Tactical Airlift Wing
Rank: Sergeant E4
Deployment Zone:  Dyess AFB TX R Car Goose Bay Canada, FAF Mildenhall UK
Years: 1977 – 1981
Time Served: 4 years 2 months
Branch of Service:  US Air Force

Why I joined the military...  I joined the military because

  • I grew up in the military, my father was in the US Army
  • Serve my Country
  • Travel
  • Learn a trade
  • Love Aviation, Aerospace, Aircraft.

I believe everyone should at least be in the reserve, to have a stake in their country.

Life changing event...  I was selected to be a student leader (rope – shoulder rope with tassel) at tech school, Keesler AFB. Barracks chief (dorm with 15 other guys), I marched 60 guys to school, my leadership was tested. I had to be tough. This is where I feel I stopped being a youngster and became a man.

Why I joined handmade by heores (HBH)...  I joined HBH via Rocky Mountain Human Services’ Jesus Guerra. I have several paracord bracelets and making them sounded interesting. This is also a good way to connect with fellow vets.

Message to customers...  I would like to thank our customers for doing business with us. By doing so, they not only get a great product, but they are involved with our vets who served our nation, some who sacrificed for it.

Thank-you for your service, and also thank you for making my bracelet with the United States Air Force logo on its. I too had some of my families’ members in the Military also too. I wanted to joined the United States Air Force to be just like my father was, but couldn’t because I had a hole in my 👂 drum. So I had volunteered in the Civil Air Patrol United States / Auxillary of United States Air Force. I am now the SON’S of AMVETS 3rd Vice-Commander of #1 Post, Tacoma, Pierce County, WA

Thanks Jim.
1st for your service as Army, and for making me this Army key clip. Hope things are going well for you.
I served USMC 77-83. Does this mean we have to start a bar fight? lol ?
Oh those were the days.

Chat later Jim. May God bless all you veterans there with His favor.

Lunch break over, gotta roll my tires.

First of all-thank you very much for your service.
Secondly, I’ve wanted one of these for a while and I absolutely love the Patriots bracelet you sent me.
Proud to wear a Patriots bracelet made by an American Patriot.
God bless.

Thank you for the excellent work on my Iowa Hawkeye bracelet.
My first one was looking a little worse for wear.
I have had this one now for a couple of weeks and it is just as I thought it would be.
Thank you for your service and the great bracelet.
