Memorial bracelets became popular in the 1970s as a way to honor and remember POW and MIA soldiers during and after the Vietnam War. Today, memorial bracelets are also worn in remembrance of fallen soldiers and loved ones, KIA in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tom’s family and friends have embraced the tradition of memorial bracelets, and many of us wear Tom’s name and KIA date on a daily basis. The bracelets often serve as a catalyst for conversation, opening a door to share Tom’s story with someone new.
We would love to send you a bracelet. If you’d like one of our red NEVER QUIT memorial bracelets — just let us know — the Foundation will send you a bracelet at no charge.
