Boots on the Ground in Leesville, Louisiana

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp Louisiana NMLS#2289 Equal Housing Lender NMLS 69996

This past week, my team gathered for two days in Leesville, Louisiana, home of Fort Polk, Louisinaa, to celebrate and serve at the historic event "I'll be Home For Christmas" parade and celebration. We were literally going to get our "boots on the ground" to serve those who serve! 


On Saturday, we were planning to join with hundreds of others to serve lunch to approximately 3,800 troops plus 2,000 family members. The community was coming together to welcome home these 3,800 soldiers from the 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, who had been deployed to Afghanistan in October of 2010, and began returning home to Fort Polk, in August of this year.

What a great way to celebrate Christmas together as a team - and also to serve the men and women of the United States military.

You guyss still have my favorite team photo of any team.  Your Boots on the Ground are a tribute to our troops and a lesson to what every community should be doing.
