Made with Navy digital blue uniforms

Designed for and dedicated to the Sailors aboard The USS Fitzgerald DDG 62, stationed in Yokosuka Japan. Early Saturday morning, on June 17, 2017, The USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship on its Starboard side, damaging the ship, later discovering that seven Sailors were missing after impact. On June 18, 2017, one of the crushed berthings was opened by a search and rescue Navy diving team, discovering the seven Sailors that were missing, perished due to drowning. 

The USS Fitzgerald has a very special place in Nick's heart, as this was the first ship, Sailors aboard The ship, moored across from Nick's old command during 2010, The USS Blueridge, would come over to Nick's ship and help make Bracelets in the galley.

Seeing that many of the Junior Sailors living aboard The USS Fitzgerald lost much of their belongings, mainly civilian clothing and items, Nick hopes this Bracelet will help raise funds to assist the Sailors purchase items that were lost during the impact, with 100% of the sale price from this Bracelet to help cover their needs.
