This has to be one of the neatest things I've ever seen on AR.  All of our military have my thanks for their service and sacrifice, but our wounded warriors are near and dear to my heart. The sacrifices they and their families have made, and the ways in which they "march on", are a testament to the American Spirit.  They deserve our gratitude, a helping hand when needed and our undying respect.  

And I'd say this even without a contest -- in fact I have.  Stop by and help Louise show our wounded warriors how much we appreciate them and all they do with your words of support. 

Happy 4th of July!

As a special way to honor our military and to get the word out in AR about the Boot Campaign,  I will be giving away a pair of these boots TOMORROW to the person who:

#1 - Reblogs this post; and

#2 Has the most comments to THIS POST- (each comment has to be about honoring our troops). This contest will end at 11:00 a.m. central time on Tuesday, July 5, 2011.


Oh - and if you are not a football fan?  Well, how about politics?  Check out Rick Perry, Governor of Texas:










Oh - you are not into football or politics?  Well, maybe you are a little bit country.....


How about the Sons of Anarchy?

Oh - you are not into sports, politics,  country or television?  Well, how about my family - here's a picture of several of my grandchildren - they all have their boots on!


The motto of the Boot Campaign is "When They Come Back, We Give Back".  We can NEVER repay the men and woman of the United States military for their service - but we can do SOMETHING to help our wounded warriors coming back.   Because the majority of the clients of our mortgage loan office are military clients, I, together with my team, have seen first hand, the wounds that war can inflict on human lives, whether it be loss of life, loss of limb, loss of family, or for some - loss of peace. 

Because of this, we have always aspired  to be a team that gives BACK all that we can to those who have given so much - and many who have lost so much.  Several months ago, I became involved this  non-profit organization - The Boot Campaign

I invite you to click the link below to watch a short video which tells of our mission to purchase 365 pairs of combat boots in 2011 and encourage other "SUITS" - or business professionals - to join with us and GET YOUR BOOTS ON! 

Suits in Boots - Pay it Back

It is an HONOR to be a part of the Boot Campaign - $25.00 of every purchase goes to projects supporting our wounded warriors. It seems as if it really is the very LEAST we can do.  And no - we are NOT "paying it forward". We are in a very small way - in the only way we know at this time -  attempting to "pay it back."

I know you've always supported our military, in a myriad of ways, so it doesn't surprise me that you would support this.  Our wounded warriors and their families give so much for us, we need to make the time and effort to remember and honor them.

Tish, I'm not at all surprised that you're supporting this cause.  The military deserve all the accolades and support that we can give them and then some.  No matter how much support we offer the wounded, whether their wounds are physical emotional or spiritual, we can never properly repay them for what they have given so that the rest of us can enjoy all that this country has to offer.  You better than most know that.  You're a great example for the rest of us to follow.

Tish, what a great cause.  I have posted about the Wounded Warrior project before.  We probably need a whole group for this.  Are you ready?

Hi friends!  Sorry for the delay in responding -- still in VA with my Mom and not spending much time on anything other than being with her.  But I am most appreciative of your support for this more than worthy cause and I thank you!

Don ~ Oh, you know I'm in!
