"I just wanted to say thank you for your son's sacrafice for our country. I am also a soldier myself and I am from Georgetown, KY. I purchased a memorial bracelet that I wear all the time and the person's name that is on it is Robert W. Ehney. I will always wear this since I was fortunate enough to return from Iraq and there were people like Robert who gave their life for others who may never understand. I just wanted this message to get to the family so that they may know that someone else who did not know Robert still carries him in his heart."
