  1. I never knew you, but your hero bracelet was placed in the Crossing of America Jeep, that I purchased in September of 2011, after it crossed the US raising funds for the Spirit of Liberty Foundation. I always said that my Jeep has its own special guardian angel, but I truly had no idea just how special.
    On May 21st, 2012 I dropped the Jeep off for service to the roof. The morning of the 26th the dealership burned to the ground. For some reason the technician was able to close the roof the night before and the Jeep was outside in a parking spot.
    Although it did sustain minor damage, no one can tell me that it was not you protecting my Jeep. Thank you for your service to this country and paying the ultimate sacrifice.
