We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved here at Valour Band; we feel that our unique commemorative bracelet provides an opportunity to mark service in a special way. Accordingly, it was incredibly humbling to get some feedback from one of our customers, who was kind enough to let us share his words here:
“I retired from the military in 2011 after completing nearly 26 years service. Like many other veterans over the years I had been awarded medals for operations and long service and had put them in a frame with the intention of wearing them on future occasions however this hasn’t happened yet. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with (PTSD) in 2014 and over the years have tried various methods of coping strategies (grounding techniques). Earlier this year, I saw an advert for Valour Bands and took the opportunity not only to recognise my own service on a daily basis but also my father’s Police (LSGC) and my grandfather’s (WW1) medals. Since wearing my Valour Band I have found that it creates a very positive talking point. When I look at the band it always reminds me of positive and happier memories and the pride that all veterans feel and also my own family’s previous service. It also in a small way detracts me from the issues that (PTSD) can cause – thank you Valour Band”.
