Make Paracord Bracelets at Home with Operation Gratitude

When you craft a paracord lanyard, you are providing a service member or first responder with a tangible and lasting expression of your gratitude and a symbol of the appreciation of grateful Americans everywhere. When your lanyards arrive at Operation Gratitude's facility, they will attach a carabiner that can be clipped onto almost anything to keep it within reach should an emergency arise. They include lanyards in their Care Packages because they’re both functional and meaningful, as they are handmade by Americans who want to show their appreciation to Military and first responders.
