Commemorating A Life-Changing Event

US Military Bracelets by Towne Craft Designs, Commemorating a Life-Changing Experience

Serving in the military is a life-changing event – and one that thousands of men and women experience each and every day. In the time they spend serving their country – whether overseas or on our own soil – they see and do things that will forever impact their outlook on life.

Upon their return from deployment, many military heroes wish to commemorate their service in a lasting and memorable way. In the past, some turned to tattoos or other body art – a practice that is still quite common today among new veterans. But there is another option: Personalized military jewelry.

At Towne Craft Designs, we created our line of US Military Bracelets as a unique way for veterans to commemorate their military careers. Each of our men’s military bracelets can be personalized in a variety of locations, and with any message you desire. Popular choices include platoon names, dates of deployment, the names of fallen comrades – anything that has meaning to you or your veteran.

Show respect for some of life’s most significant memories today with a US Military Bracelet. Visit www.usmilitarybracelets.com to learn more.

Remember the fallen. Honor the living.

US Military Bracelets, Towne Craft Designs, Remember the Fallen, Honor the Living

This coming Monday, May 28th, is Memorial Day – the day on which we show remembrance for those members of the United States Military who have given their lives in service of our country. These brave men and women fought to protect our freedoms and paid the ultimate price. Whether you are visiting your local cemetery to place flags on gravesites, attending parades or ceremonies to show support for living veterans, or engaging in your own private reflection, be sure to remember the sacrifices others have made so that we can be free.

At Towne Craft Designs, we have the utmost respect and admiration for each and every member of the United States Military. We urge you to show your support for them – not only on days of remembrance, but year-round.

We wish you a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.

How do military families survive deployments?

US Military Bracelets, Towne Craft Designs, How do Military Families Survive Deployments

To most of us, having a family member away at college, on a business trip, or at an exotic vacation destination gives us some sense of anxiety for their safety. Even so, thoughts of whatever danger they might face while away can usually be banished with a simple self assurance that we are worrying too much – our loved ones will soon be home again.

Since becoming friends with several military families in my neighborhood, I’ve became much more aware of the constant roller-coaster ride that they experience when a loved one is sent in harm’s way. How do they cope with the constant fear of the worst happening to them? How are they able to carry on with their lives – and even smile?

One afternoon, at a neighborhood playground, I asked these questions to a young military wife whose husband has been deployed twice in the past three years. She gave up her career five years ago to be at home with their children. Her answer was surprisingly simple, and attached to a wide smile: “Love”, she responded. “I love my husband and believe in what he does. My job as a military mom matters, and our unity as a family makes us strong and resilient.”

The simplicity of how she views her job as a military wife and mom amazes me. She is fully aware of both her family’s situation and the risks involved in her husband’s deployment, and yet her children are just as healthy, happy, and mischievous as all the others on that playground. They are growing up with two amazing role models in their lives. They understand that faith, courage, love, and resilience are all vital components of a happy life – no matter which path you choose to take.

If you feel the same level of appreciation for military families, be sure to let them know how much you admire them. The support of others who appreciate their sacrifices can be invaluable in helping families at home cope with the deployment of their loved ones.

US Military Bracelets, Military Gifts, Towne Craft Designs, Honor Your Hero Across the Miles

Those men and women committed to serving our country follow the call to duty wherever it takes them. Many in the armed forces fight for freedom across the globe, spending holidays far away from home and the ones they love.

We recognize the courage and dedication of our armed forces, and the sacrifices they make in defense of our nation. Military deployments are long-term commitments, testing endurance and fortitude. Amid the hardships of long-term separation, out of touch with family and friends, service members not only face the dangers of potential combat, but also contend with stress, anxiety, and depression.

At these difficult times, the memory of supportive loved ones brings comfort and hope. This spring, let your thoughts and prayers bridge the distance and help your hero stay closer to home.
