Chad Peebles, My Hero!

Chad Peebles, My Hero!

Anthony Peebles served in the military and was sent to Grenada. Whenever we pass a soldier, sailor, marine, airman, or Coast Guard, let’s thank them for their service. For years now, whenever I encounter someone in uniform I say to them, “You are my hero.” It always brings a smile and that brightens my day.

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. –Douglas MacArthur

  1. Operation ShoeBox has a store in central Florida. It was started by a mother who had iirc four children in the military when she learned of the needs of the service members.

    You can help without much effort. They ask for things like: writing letters to service men and women; sending crossword puzzles from the newspapers; sewing and putting together the bags they now use instead of shoeboxes.

    It is a wonderful organization. I have helped by buying from the store and by helping with the bags. I have also actively promoted their efforts.
