SFC Vitalich,

First and foremost, thank you for your service to our country!!!!! It is very much appreciated. The Epilepsy bracelet you made for me is amazing. I will wear it with pride. It also will be very helpful to my situation if I were to have a seizure outside of the presence of family and friends. It will help people to assist me appropriately. I have tried wearing many forms of medical identification over the past 45 years and the para-cord bracelets are the most effective. It means even more to me that in the process I can support such a good cause. I wish you the best of health and will continue to support handmadebyheros.

With Much Gratitude,
