A Hero’s Welcome…
It’s that time again to show our hero’s we have their backs here at home with a MUG & HUG!
We’ve been contacted by the proud parents of Cpt. Jerry Reitano asking if we could do a little something…
” My son has just returned from Afghanistan where he served for 1 year with the Army. He arrived home last Monday, March 31st to his wife and baby daughter who is 18 months. He is currently completing his post deployment at Ft Hood, Texas and then is returning to our home where he grew up in Havertown, Pa. We plan on having an welcome home open house for him on Sunday April 27th and was wondering if it would be possible for your organization to drive to our location and make this celebration special by acknowledging his service. I understand you must get many requests and can’t honor them all. After all you are doing this on your own time. I know this is on short notice and I am only sending this because he will be leaving shortly for his next assignment, luckily in the states. Appreciate all that you do and thanks for listening.”
