Mary, I LOVE my keychain, thanks so much! My company-Savers is great about recognizing my service and every year they manage to touch me in a special way. This year it was a card, your card and the keychain. Thanks so much for your service and I hope your family is very proud of you because I certainly am!

Mary, Thank you for your service. I received my two bracelets today, made by you. I ordered the US Navy in black and the PTSD awareness bracelets. My son is currently serving in the U S Navy, and has been deployed twice to the middle east. And my step son served in the U S Army in the Iraq war. He is now in a VA facility suffering from PTSD and substance abuse issues. So, you now can see the reason I chose the bracelets I did. Again, our country owes you, and all who have served and are currently serving, a sincere debt of gratitude for your unselfish sacrifice. God Bless You!

Thank you for your service and thanks for making my (first ever) medical alert bracelet. Got my Dad one from you guys a while back so when I needed one, I knew where to get it. 🇺🇸

Hi Mary. First I would like to thank you for your service. I love the bracelet and the orange really is brite. I chose orange for the multiple sclerosis that I have. I will be having two for cystic fibrosis and one for rheumatoid arthritis. Those will be for my girls. I have others: thin blue line, American Eagle, drug allergies and one with a cross on it. It would be nice if you can make them for me.
You take care and have a Blessed Memorial Day.
Vickie from Kentucky.

Thanks for making my bracelet Mary! Great quality and very durable. I do a lot of labor work, so I’m glad its durable enough to not break. Definitely will be ordering again!

I received my key chain today made by Mary. It looks great! Thank you! I didnt serve in the military but chose to become a career firefighter. I deeply respect those that serve and have recently decided to help bring awarness to people about ptsd not only as it relates to the military but to fire and police as well. This is why my key chain has the olive, red, and blue cords with the ptsd inset. Thanks again and keep up the good work! Jim
