Wednesday Hero 11/26/2008

L/Cpl. Samuel Joyce

U.S. Marine Corps.

Lance Cpl. Samuel Joyce, from Boston, accepts a bagfull of toys during the Toys For Tots 5k Run at Fleet Activities Yokosuka. Runners donated new toys to the local Marine's Toys for Tots program.



These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams. Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look

What a great and worth while cause, Toys for Tots ~ i just love anything that is done for children that will bring a smile to their sweet little faces.
Your son is a handsome Lad ~ my own son (he is 9) loved looking at his picture and reading the Airman's Creed. He wants to join the RAF when he is all grown up.
Love,
Amanda x
(Like you poll ~ i'm off to vote!)

amanda.. I could not agree with you more, we must take care of the children!
Thank you for the kind words regarding my son! John knew he wanted to join the USAF when he was 9, which is when my oldest son enlisted. As a mom, we encourage their dreams and hopefully one day they live those dreams!
P.S. thank you for the vote!

I say prayers for our servicemen and women everyday, and thank The Good Lord for their sacrifice. Tomorrow, on Thanksgiving, I will also be saying special prayers for all of our special people.

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving, Airman Mom and family!
