The bracelet on his right wrist is for a fallen American soldier in Iraq. It is engraved, "Sgt. Ryan David Jopek, August 2 2006. All gave some - he gave all." The bracelet was given to Obama by the soldier's mother.

"She gave me this wristband, which I'm very grateful for. I meet mothers and family members all over the country who are still mourning their children but are also thinking about the young men and women who are still over there and wondering when it will end." -Barack Obama at a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin
