Gen. Robert Neller wears a black cuff engraved with the name of Cpl. Eric Lueken, who was killed in Iraq’s Anbar province in 2006 at the age of 23. The bracelet is a reminder of the responsibility that comes with the stars on his shoulder, Neller said.
“This is my, ‘Hey, Lueken says be a general,'” he said. “‘Make a decision, do something, make it better.’ So that’s why I wear this.”
