The meaning of the "Thin Red Line of Courage" - As firefighters are periled, they place their lives second to those they protect. They are forced to face their own fears and grasp for every ounce of courage to perform the necessary task.
History behind PARA-CORD bracelets: PARA-CORD Bracelets were originally created by Iraq Disabled War Vets from regulation 550 Military Parachute Cord. In Iraq, Afghanistan and the War on Terror, as in previous wars, deployed US Military personnel have created new versions of what used to be called "Trench Art" in World Wars One & Two. Vietnam Veterans had their "Short timer's sticks" and calendars. These NEW veterans have created Rifle Slings, Knife lanyards, Pistol Lanyards and these bracelets from Military Issue 550 Pound Strength Parachute cord, otherwise known as PARA-CORD. They proudly identify who has been to the "Sandbox" as in Iraq & Afghanistan. The meaning of these bracelets transcends their obvious appeal as a clothing accessory. Uniform professionals of all services, including military, police and firefighter now proudly wear these knowing that in addition to their historical meaning, they can also get approximately 10 feet of lifesaving 550 pound test cord for any emergency.
