He gave me his army bracelet to remember him by…

“This is a picture of the army bracelet my brother gave me to remember him by. I’ve been holding it close to my heart until we see each other face to face. You see, because of his military service, my brother only comes home once every three years…

That’s why I promised I’d always visit him whenever he came to town. But several years ago my father and him got into a terrible argument. When I told my dad I still wanted to see my brother he became very angry with me. I ended up listening to my dad and breaking my promise. Don’t get me wrong, I love my dad but I felt like a terrible sister. It’s been three years since that incident and I know we are due for another visit. So, I decided to make a new promise: This visit, I will not let my dad hold me back. Argument or no argument, that is my one and only brother.”
