On June 3rd last month M4M rec'd an "on-line" request for a medal gift to be sent to an Indiana resident. The sender was a daughter, in the military (Army) stationed in South Korea. She had just completed the GREAT WALL OF CHINA Marathon. She wanted her Dad to have the medal. However, she wanted it sent to him on a Medals4Mettle Ribbon. Her letter was very touching; about how she earned it but that his battle with leukemia was much worse than what it took to run the race; she was so far away from him; how she thought that giving him the medal would encourage his fight, etc. So, we told her to send us her medal and we would get it to her Dad. Upon receipt of the medal, we mailed it with her letter on our ribbon with our little card about how someone was thinking of him in his fight and wanted him to know he was not alone. Sadly, he passed away last week, June 26. His daughter (the one who sent us the medal and earned the medal) just stopped by the office to THANK US for making sure he rec'd the medal from her. He rec'd it a couple days before he passed. What was amazing was that during the few days he had the medal he had put it in a MEMORY BOX with her note, her photo and her medal to brag about it and show it off. It was a beautiful display! Instead, he left a wonderful momento of what she had done for him. The family loves this item and will cherish it forever. The daughter and wife wanted to share this with our organization so I am passing it along to all of you. Sorry the photo is not great - cell phone - but you get the idea.
