Serving in the military comes with a very big price and we cannot even think what a family of an officer must have gone through, to let him serve in the army. There are lot of sacrifices which families of soldiers have to go through, which indeed deserves respect.
There are times when a loved one doesn’t return back and all their life, the family of soldier has to go through unthinkable amount of pain. These are the people who are strong and keep up their fighting spirit. We salute those men who give their everything so that we keep living safely.
William Jazwinski, from New York served in the army and was posted in Iraq for one year and three months. He was Heavy Wheeled Vehicle Operator for the US army.
He was driving his car and was stopped by the cop. He posted his conversation with the cop on his Facebook profile.
Me- Goodmorning officer. Was I speeding?
Officer- Goodmorning, no not speeding. Just wanted to stop ya and say thankyou for your service.
Me- oooh the bumper sticker, nice. Your welcome sir. My pleasure.
Officer- where did you serve?
Me- I went to Iraq. Did a 15 monther. Out of Ft Benning.
Officer- well alright. My son went to Iraq. He didnt make it home.
Me- man, I’m so sorry to hear that. I just finished a ptsd program.
Officer- I see you have a flag in the truck. The one we got for him! Well its at the house. Can I ask a question?
He was little taken away with an unexpected question coming his way.
Officer- Do you mind stepping out and receiving a hug. You remind me of my son. I pulled you over. I thought you were him. I still don’t believe it most days he’s gone.
With tears in both our eyes I got out and hugged that man. I’m talking about for a minute or two crying. Down to our knees crying. I needed that.
To all the family and friends of soldiers, fighting or done fighting, God bless you. Your peace and your hearts. Its so hard without them, i know. This road is a tremendous one. Love to all.
