Sergeant Merlin German

How do you repay the many men and women who fight for our freedom every day? They sacrifice so much in order for us to have the freedom and liberty that we all enjoy. Reminderband Inc had the opportunity of making silicone wristbands in honor of Sergeant Merlin German.

Merlin was born in Manhattan, New York on Nov 15th, 1985. On January 21st, 2005, Sergeant German’s squad was on a mission enroute from Jordan to Baghdad, when he saw an IED while standing in the turret. His humvee was hit by a gas-fed charge explosive and Sergeant German was burned over 97% of his body. He had endured about 100 surgeries and much pain before he died on April 11th 2008. His courage and great attitude will be missed by all who knew him. He fought his personal battle for nearly three years, but died while recovering from his last surgery.

Merlin loved children and started a foundation to assist burned children and their families. It was his dream to grant these families with their wish. To donate or read more about this information, go to
