Sifting through the Photographs.....Day 13 of the December Challenge

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

Today I will begin to sift through the photographs from the "I'll Be Home For Christmas" parade and celebration held last Saturday in Leesville, Louisiana, home of Fort Polk Army Base and Joint Readiness Training Center.  This event was to celebrate the return from Afghanistan of 3,800 warriors of the 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division.

As you can see below - it is going to be hard to pick the "best" photos! 

A portion of these photographs will be used by the Vernon Parish Chamber of Commerce along with other area businesses in sharing with others what this community did for the returning heroes. An unparalled event, for certain. A portion of the photographs will be used for a new team initiative for serving our military(more on that later!).

Of course, our team was excited to be a part of such a "give back" program to these 3,800 troops. Part of our business plan for 2012 is to form a strategy on how we can do more.

It's all about giving back and making a difference in the lives of the people who are making a difference - our military.
