Patty Mattes, a proud military mom and supporter of Peace Cord, had these thoughtful words to share:
“I am so glad I came across this website. My son is currently serving his second deployment in Afghanistan so I think these peace cords are a perfect reminder of our men and women who are serving their country and helping the Afghans at the same time.”
