Hi there. I found your bracelet in a store in Saint Cloud, Florida. I raised 5 children 4 of whom were in the Military and went to Iraq and Afghanistan. My Daughter did 2 tours of Iraq and then ended up at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. She is now medically retired and 100% disabled. I like that you are doing something to stay busy but as I always tell my daughter you are a part of something. You will always be a soldier and part of the military family. I wish you and your family well….
