Hero Bracelets

I recently ordered two "Hero Bracelets" from the web site. A sample is at the right. Although they now have Vietnam, Deployed and Purple Heart bracelets, and Hero tags, I ordered the original bracelet to recognize a soldier killed in action in Afganistan or Iraq.

My bracelets arrived today. I just wanted to say thank you to Sgt. 1st Class William M. Bennett and Sgt. Charles T. Caldwell.

I hope you don't mind that I will be wearing your memory on my wrist.

Can you request a particular name, Kj? There's a kid from my town who won't be coming home and I'd kind of like to remember him.

Yeah. It costs extra. Hit the links and go to "Custom Hero Bracelet."

Thanks MUCH, KJ!

I want my own and I will also use my lil radio sphere to promote the bracelets to others. Just a couple of weeks [in one market I'm on the air] ago W. Monroe, LA lost one of their own I bet there will be plenty of people specifically wanting that young heroes name.

Even something so...ahem...*matter of fact* as your post and the story spd linked makes getting choked up and weepy so VERY easy. This kind of heroism and the sacrifices will NEVER just be "business as usual" in my heart and mind.

Could you help us get the word out about this? We're trying to get Free HeroBracelets to Gold Star Families.
----------
HeroBracelets.org would like to send a small token of our appreciation to every Gold Star Family in America. We’re not sure if we can actually do this, but we’re going to try.
Initially, we’ll give a free HeroBracelet to the first 150 Gold Star Families that write us. If we’re able, financially, to continue to give a bracelet to every Gold Star Family in America, we will.
HeroBracelets.org has no financial backing and no full time employees and we operate by word of mouth. We started HeroBracelets.org to raise money for the families of those lost to war and our mission has expanded greatly since we started in 2004.
But for now, we want to give a gift of remembrance to as many Gold Star Families as we can.
HOW IT WILL WORK.
- PLEASE, one free HeroBracelet to Gold Star Family.
- To order your free Memorial HeroBracelet, email a memorial to your lost loved one to info@herobracelets.org. Your memorial can be anything you choose. Write whatever you like and feel free to include photos. Your memorial will have a special place on the HeroBracelets.org Web site.
- When you send us your memorial, we’ll email you a coupon code good for the free bracelet.
- Order as you would. You may order other HeroBracelets offerings, silver, copper, leather, tags etc. The cost of the Memorial HeroBracelets ($13.00) will automatically be deducted from your order when you use your coupon code.
- Shipping is not included.
Your HeroBracelets will get to you in about a week with our great appreciation.
Go to http://www.herobracelets.org/?page_id=1082 for the link.
Please feel free to forward this email on!
