November 11: Honoring Veterans & Active Members of the Armed Forces!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Two years ago, thanks to our clients unwavering support of the Navy Seals, we had the opportunity to witness a live demonstration of a special opps team taking down a villain.  Note, the canine soldier is part of the take down team.  

 

This annual event is held at the Pebble Beach resort at the beginning of the Legends Invitational Golf Tournament . Committed to creating a memorable occasion for all who attend, the Legends Invitational does so with the intent of raising awareness and funds for the National SEAL Museum and Memorial

 

The most touching moment is when the lone bagpiper walked slowly playing our National Anthem as one of the seals parachuted down holding our flag, and the other brought down the flag of the Legends Golf Tournament.  The audience was in tears, as were we.  Once again, we realize that Freedom is not free and sadly as one of the Medal Honor Recipients spoke, he reiterated, "Freedom is written in blood."

Today is an opportunity to be grateful to all those who work every day to maintain the freedom we have in the United States.  We cannot take this for granted ever!

Michael Jacobs The event is happening again this week.  We are attending the first part, but not the invitational.  It moved me the first time, and in the retelling to friends, we both still tear up.  I was glad that we have access to the pro's photography. These are the people one does not see on the battlefield, they are there first to pave the way...A

Sheila Anderson for us it is profound, as these are the service people who do not get recognized as they are the ones who pave the way for the troops. They gather information.  A

Maria Gilda Racelis I had a long discussion about the dog.  It turns out that he is is a Belgian Malinois, and they are trained from puppy stage. It was glorious seeing the flag as the seal jumped from the helicopter.

Barbara Todaro it truly is.  When we witnessed it they took down the CEO of one of the sponsors (he knew ahead of time).  It was something, as the men on the ground who took him down, a jeep followed to take him away.  A

I drive by Patrick Air Force Base most days. I remember (on quite a few occasions) seeing the brave men and women being loaded up for an oversees deployment.

It would be interesting to see the take down...and I love dog soldiers.  As for the sky show - stunning. This must be so moving to see in person. I'm sure there are plenty of moist eyes. I know it was an emotional experience for you two.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD it makes people understand what is really happening, and most work is done with special opps.  Those dogs are amazing, they know how to switch from work to dog.  The eighteenth hole at Pebble Beach is spectacular, with a view of the Pacific...the bagpiper always gives the chills, it is part of their tradition there.

We were at a wedding there a few years ago and the bagpiper played at different tune as the bride and groom rode in a carriage pulled by white horses! A

And much of that blood came from my family.  America hasn't had a war I haven't lost someone in my family in... I have the utmost respect for my freedoms and strive to be the kind of American worth fighting for.
