To honor Bands For Arms Supporter, Deliesse Hitt, her friend, Eric William's story, was chosen for 9/11/13
Sgt. Eric Williams. Eric was KIA on July 23, 2012 in Afghanistan. He was just south from Kabul and en route to finally coming home from deployment. His base was attacked and a grenade was thrown into the tent he was sharing with fellow soldiers. The grenade didn't immediately go off so Eric threw himself on it in order to save his fellow brothers in arms. Eric was a paratrooper and a flight medic with 3rd Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, based at Fort Bragg, N.C.
