"I am honored to wear a bracelet with Aaron's name inscribed. I ordered it through Bracelets for Soldiers, the soldier was a random choice. Happy to see info on Aaron and his family online. My deepest sympathy to the family, and also my deepest gratitude to a young man who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that I may be an American. I have shared his story with many who notice the bracelet and ask me about it. Your loved one will not be forgotten, he has touched many, even in his passing."
