Made with current military uniforms from all branches and historic uniforms dating back to WWII

Nick, this year, decided to honor all military on Armed Forces Day, by designing an evolution type of Bracelet, representing each military branch. In the Bracelet design, from bottom to top, it begins with the current Coast Guard uniform, followed by Navy WWII dress white and dress blue uniforms, which evolved to our current Navy Type II and Type III uniforms. Next, a WWII Marine Corps uniform, followed by the current Marine woodland and desert camis. For our Air Force, Nick began with an Army Air Corps uniform, evolving to the established Air Force blue uniform from the Korean War era, followed by our current Air Force BDU's and flight suit uniform. Last, Nick uses a WWII Army uniform, followed by our current Army multi cam and ACU's.

Made to honor those remembered on May 21st, who've served or currently serving in the United States in The Navy, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Army. President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.
