Good afternoon sweet blogging buddies.
This morning I helped spruce up a house
that is being donated to a US soldier.
Our soldiers ~
both US and Canadian
sacrifice so much to keep us free.
When I heard that the bank I work for was donating a house
to a soldier and his family
a few towns North of me...
well I had to help out.
Shawn and Emily and their 4 girls
were given a mortgage free home.
Shawn last served in Iraq after his unit was hit
in a Taliban camp that they were in.
He was wounded, but some of his brothers died.
Their story will be featured tonight at 9PM ET
on the Amercian Heros Channel.
The show is called The Hornet's Nest.
I wish I could watch it, but I do not get this channel.
His story made me cry
and I was glad we could help him unload their U-Haul
along with the spruce up, so that they can stay in their new home tonight.
His story reminded me of my dad.
My dad was a Marine in the Korean War.
He was shot in the head.
Fortunately for him, (and me)
he had his helmet on at the time.
Soldiers don't get to call in sick,
or take a mental health day.
They do not get home cooked meals,
and even miss a meal at times.
We are so fortunate to have men and women
who are willing to take these sacrifices.
A big shout out to all of them.
Now for some of our current store displays.
Freedom To Everyone Blessings To All!
