HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

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

Paracord bracelets made by YOU are meaningful to Veterans and provide a symbolic appreciation for their service to our country.

DESCRIPTION

The Mission Continues is a national nonprofit organization that connects military veterans with new missions in under-resourced communities.

Make meaningful paracord bracelets for Veterans and their families!  Not only do these bracelets look cool, they can be used to save a life in an emergency situation.  They’re both functional and meaningful, as they are handmade by YOU to show your appreciation to our Troops.
