Support US Troops by Creating Paracord Bracelets — set it good

To honor Military Appreciation Month, “Operation Gratitude” offers a way for YOU to help, when Americans everywhere take pause to express appreciation to service members and their families.

HOW CAN A PARACORD “SURVIVAL” BRACELET BE USED?

All who serve use paracord, which gets its name from parachute cord and can hold up to 550 lbs. of weight. The bracelet provides 7.5 feet of cord in an emergency. Paracord “Survival” Bracelets can be used to:

  • Secure camouflage nets to trees or vehicles
  • Build a makeshift shelter
  • Extend a security strap or rope to reach and haul heavy objects
  • Create a harness to extract an injured person from a bad location
  • Make a sling or splint

And those are just a few of the ways to use the full paracord! Cut the paracord and remove the 7 to 9 individual nylon strands inside it (the “guts”) and now you have finer strong string to use as:

  • Sewing thread to repair gear
  • Emergency sutures to close a wound
  • Fishing line
  • Trip line to secure an area

Our hope is to include one Paracord “Survival” Bracelet in each of our Deployed Troop Care Packages, and in the First Responder and Recruit Graduate Care Pouches.
