Thank you, Douglas, for making a very special bracelet for our son, Eric Skasik. Eric’s MOS is 82nd Airborne, 1-504. He transitioned to Germany, was attached to 1st ID and was in Iraq in 2003-2004 in Kirkuk. He moved to 4th ID and was with ISAF in Afghanistan, FOB Lagman in 2009. He is now in Hawaii recruiting special forces from active duty military. When he got the bracelet on Christmas Day, he put it on and hasn’t taken if off since. This bracelet means a lot to him, especially since it was made by a fellow Army veteran. Thank you so much for your service and for being that brave 1% that keeps the rest of us safe. Wishing you a wonderful new year! Dave & Melissa.
