Veteran

Well, I have been gone a long while but have decided it is time to pick this back up as I need the inspiration once again it brings me.

 

All – Meet Erich Orrick, founder of the Veteran Charity ” Wish for Our Heroes” which he started in 2009  to help service members move, get new appliances, even assist with their childcare.

A charity group has given more than $10 million in donations. No small feat if you ask me.

What do they do exactly… Glad you asked:

He is Super Feel Good Depot Kind of AWESOME just for that alone but he is also a retired veteran with a Bronze Star and Purple Heart to boot.

Guess what…. he is only part of why I am giving this shout out.

The Indianapolis Colts’ Pat McAfee & Colby Fleener recently got together with people Erich’s community and decided to give his home a makeover.

NICE!!! What a great gift to a well deserving man. You can check it out here…

Erich Orrick, Pat McAfee, & Colby Fleener… You all TOTALLY ROCK!!

And what was Erich’s response to all this goodness:

“I’m completely spellbound. It’s amazing,” he said. “My life has been focused on helping other people. … It was a very humbling experience, being the person that was being helped.

But I don’t want people to miss the story here, that there’s a lot of troops out there that really need help.”

FANTASTIC!!!

From the person who received it:

I just thought I would share with you all what happened to me today! Came out of Dunkin Donuts and found this under my windshield wiper. There are no words to describe how I’m feeling right now. Tears in my eyes. I just wish I could thank whoever did this! God bless our troops and all of those who stand behind them.

AWESOME!!!!

The woman, Samantha Ford, a mother of two who lives outside of Boston, quickly snapped a photo of the note and the cash, and shared it on the Facebook page “Our Deployment: 101,” a sort of online support community for people affiliated with the military.

By the way, the sticker on her car says “1/2 my heart is in Afghanistan

WHOMEVER did this YOU TOTALLY FREAKING ROCK!!!!

You have restored my faith in humanity again for a bit longer!!!

To Samantha and her Boyfriend… Fair Winds & Following Seas!! Thank you both fore being AWESOME!!
