From a proud Marine father.

Dear HeroBracelets,

Want to thank you for the beautiful bracelets. We've been looking for custom Deployed Marine bracelets for a while and found several websites that offered something similar, but we thought the price was too high or the bracelets were flimsy. Then we found HeroBracelets and knew this was the right place. The bracelets were better looking and a better price than others we found. AND it's really nice to know we're helping to support the Fallen Heroes Fund. Dont know how you can do it, but we're all very happy you can!

We wanted to get a big batch of custom Marine bracelets with my son's name, Lance Corporal Jerry Simms, so we ordered 25 custom bracelets. We wanted them to hand out to everyone at Jerry's going away party and were amazed at how quickly you sent us the order. I have to say, the bracelets really brought tears to everyones eyes as we handed them out at the party. Even Jerry, who is as tough as they get, was teary eyed when he saw the bracelets.

We're all going to wear them till he comes home to us. We've talked about having another party for him when he comes home and doing something interesting with all our bracelets. I might frame them all for him.

He's in Iraq now and we pray for him every day. Our bracelets are a constant reminder that he's over there and he's written to us telling us it makes him feel good to know so many of his friends and family are wearing bracelets with his name on them. He knows we all miss him and want him back with us.

Thanks HeroBracelets for giving us a great way to carry around a little reminder of Jerry.
