“I am an on the road Law Enforcement Sales manager for a distributor out of NY. I am also a Vet. Last night I was on the road in Kokomo, Indiana. I went out for dinner and while setting at the bar a man and a woman came in and set next to me. There really was very little conversation but a little chit chat stuff. Anyway the man got up to go to the restroom and his wife looked at my bracelet and said that her son had sent her directions how to make them but she had lost them. I said why don’t you ask him to send them again. Then I saw the pain in her face and the tears started flowing. She lost her son in Afghanistan.
I looked at her and said I am so sorry for you loss, but Thank You for your sacrifice. I then took the bracelet off of my arm and handed it to her and said this is from a fellow vet, keep it. She looked at me as if I had given her a million dollars. I left never getting her name and actually I almost felt naked because I was not wearing the bracelet so I went out today and bought another and hopefully I don’t have to give it away again, but if I ever have to I will do it with pride.
Thanks for making a great product, and giving me the opportunity to give it to someone who really needed it.”
A group of our Survival Straps friends hiked up the Appalachian Trail this fall and took their Survival Bracelets with them-just in case. You never know when you’ll need to use 550 paracord to save your hide!
Two-year old, Jack Marvin tragically lost his father, John Marvin, on January 27, 2012. Only 28 years old, John died in an off-duty accident. John, a Coventry native, was a two-year veteran of the Hartford Police Department and an active Sergeant in the Connecticut National Guard. Prior to joining the Hartford Police Department, he served in the Navy, for six years. Marvin had served overseas with Operation Iraqi Freedom for which he earned multiple prestigious awards. John was a loving father taken from his son too early. Only four months later, on June 1, 2012, the unexpected happened. Jack lost his Uncle James Marvin due to illness. At 25 years old, James had already served in the Navy, was a highly decorated member of the National Guard, served in Afghanistan as a specialist for Operation Enduring Freedom, and was a four-year veteran of the Hartford Police. James was very committed to his community and his country. Like John, James’ upbeat personality and carefree spirit brightened the lives of many.
