Made with Nick's uniform button
July 18th, 2014 marks Nick's 8th year in the United States Navy. Every year, Nick is given a uniform allowance to replace his uniforms and with this, Nick donates his warn uniforms back to Bands For Arms.
As Nick celebrates his 8th Anniversary enlisted in the United States Navy, Nick dedicates a necklace to the mother of the fallen Marine who gave Nick his first bracelet. A button was used to completed the first bracelet, symbolizing Nick's friend as the bullied Marine in the platoon he was assigned to. Once the 4 deployment was completed, the bullied Marine befriended 17x Marines that once mocked and bullied Nick's friend. Though set apart from his platoon, in the end, it was the bullied Marine that brought a band of brother's together, leading to the mentorship of Nick to over 500x Marines since 2007.
