One Amazing Veteran Serving Our Troops
Our United States Veterans are amazing men and women without a doubt. There are moments when you can truly be inspired by their deep love for country that is woven with love and respect towards fellow Veterans and active duty soldiers. Well I had one of those “inspired” moments today while I was with one amazing Veteran.
Packing Session 101
This afternoon Operation Soldier Care had its 101th packing session and we were truly honored to have Len Bellin, 89, World War II and Korean War Veteran volunteer his time to come support our deployed soldiers. Len jumped in with heart and soul to help assemble care packages. He kept a steady packing pace until the final box was filled.
This packing session we had a total of 83 boxes. They will mainly ship to troops deployed in Afghanistan.
Towards the end of the packing session Len asked if he could drop a personal note into one of the boxes he had packed. Of course I could not help but smile when I read the note he had placed into the care package. I also could not resist sharing his note with everyone to read too.
“I now salute you.”
Like I was saying — “United States Veterans are amazing men and women …..”, and Len Bellin is truly one amazing 89 year old Veteran. He inspired me and can inspire us all to remain true and humble to the men and women on the frontline.
God bless Len Bellin! God bless all of our Veterans! And God bless our troops — we salute you!
