In our early development years probably one of the first
memories we have is that of becoming friends with some
fictitious person and actually moving into their world
for a time, because we felt so safe and comfortable there.
And yes, we would only move out of there sometimes because
of a question from one of our parents inquiring as to
whether we were away with the fairies or not.
As we progressed and moved on to school we only felt comfortable
in that environment when we became friends with some others in the
class and moved on to have friends with the opposite sex.
Those were the days not a care in the world and sometimes life long friendships was developed.
Military Friendships Are Very Healthy.
Ft. Knocks – Kentucky
I remember one of the most heart touching displays of friendships was when I was working in Iraq, I was promoting military rings there for the troops, well actually the deployment ring which was quite new at the time. I was at our display when to young soldiers stopped by enquiring as to what was going on; we shall refer to them as Jason and Damien.
I gave them a presentation on the rings and how they could purchase one. Both of the soldiers decide that they would like to purchase a ring but one of them, Damien was getting married and could not fit it into his budget. His friend was writing up the paperwork for his order when Damien said he would he would wait for him in the Post Exchange. Before Damien strolled away, Jason enquired as to what size his wedding ring was going to be, he said it was size eleven and his girlfriend had already had it back home.
Military Rings Band of Brothers
Band of Brothers
We continued on doing the paper work for Jason and when he had finished I gave him his receipt and thanked him for his order. I was getting ready to say goodbye, when he stopped me and said, I’m not finished, I now want you to get an order form and I want to make another order for this special deployment military ring, for Damien.
I’m doing this because he has been my best friend since high school and right through the military. We have fought side by side in Iraq and he saved my life, so this little ring is going to be my surprise wedding gift to him and I’m sure that when we both go our separate ways that this little military ring will make us both realize that we are truly a little band of brothers and friends.
Military Rings used as Wedding Rings
For members of the armed forces it’s not always so easy to go shopping for the big day especially if you are away on deployment or separated by states or countries from your loved one. It’s not surprising then the amount of people that are turning their attention to military rings for the engagement rings and wedding bands.
You can have both family names on both rings and the wedding date plus many other details engraved. The amount of options over and above conventional rings are many and the cost is very much less, so let your wedding gift to each other be, a custom military ring with a complimentary pendant also.
