Here are some more quotes from supporters of Peace Cord!
“I [purchased Peace Cord] as a gift for a young lady who is graduating from college and will be commissioned as a Navy Officer this coming May. My daughter graduates from the same program next year and will be a Navy Nurse…and I am retired from the US Navy after serving 25 years. Women today in our country have so many freedoms and having traveled to some not so nice places during my 25 year career I know that is not the case in many nations in Africa/ Middle East/Asia. I bought the Peace Cord [bracelets] for the these young Naval officers to remind them that what they do is not just important to the citizens of the United States, but hopefully their service will stand for a greater gift…freedom for so many, especially women, who are still oppressed in so many nations. God bless you for what you do to facilitate a means for the women of Afghanistan to endeavor to gain that independence and freedom that they so richly deserve!” – Pam Jacobsen, US Navy Retired
“I was given one of the Navy Peace Cord bracelets from my sister & I LOVE IT!!! My son bought one in honor of his cousin who just entered the army & was just sent to Afghanistan.” – Karen in VA
“If you’re on my Christmas list this year… guess what you’re getting… hint hint – these are awesome accessories with a special story to go with them…. the PERFECT gift!” – Heather in Riner, VA
“Peace Cords are a hot item at the George W. Bush Presidential Center Conference on Afghan Women!” – Jenifer in Austin, TX
(The conference was held at Southern Methodist University in Dallas last week.)
