On Aug. 24, Operation Paracord members with Girl Scout Troup 9231 of La Crescenta gathered at the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge for their first paracord bracelet-making party. An offshoot of Operation Gratitude, Operation Paracord assembles survival bracelets that are then sent overseas to U.S. servicemen and servicewomen to wear in case of emergency.

Paracord (parachute cord) is a lightweight nylon rope originally used in the suspension lines of the U.S. parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found the cord useful for many other tasks.

The Scouts made over 50 bracelets that will be donated to Operation Gratitude. The bracelets were assembled with eight feet of paracord that was woven together and worn as a bracelet. If needed, the soldier could untie the bracelet and use the cord for lifting objects, making shelter and even save a life. Paracord bracelets are worn all over the world and Girl Scout Troop 9231 wanted to help soldiers overseas.

Operation Paracord was recently started by Jolene Taylor and Debbie Bright – two Glendale natives. Troop 9231 Girl Scouts include Katrina Voors, Malley Musso, Samantha Daidone, Brianna Jenks, Sydney Pontius, Amanda Adcook, and Destiny Bright.

“Paracord bracelets are a symbol of supporting our military,” said Taylor.
