Once In a Lifetime!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Linda Lipscomb RE/MAX Lexington Henderson County TN

Very few times in our lives do we have a moment...you know, the kind that takes your breath away.

Well, we at RE/MAX Unlimited had such a moment today.

We had a surprising and most pleasant visitor, SFC Paula Vaden.  Ms. Vaden is our "Adopt a Soldier".

Paula presented RE/MAX Unlimited with a certificate and an American Flag flown over the Headquarters in Iraq.  We were so thrilled.  Paula stated that we were the only business in Lexington to participate, which made us a little sad, but even more honored to accept this gift.

We did so little to help....a few care packages, emails, cards, and lots of prayers that she and the others in her platoon would return home safely.  And all did return home safely, a blessing in itself.

So to Paula and the rest of her platoon, Welcome Home!

From the bottom of our hearts, "Thank You for Your Service".

Good for you guys. I think unless we are personally affected by the conflict we forget what our troops are doing so far from home. While my assistants nephew was in Afghanistan we sent a HUGE parcel bigger than my two year old. It made his squadron VERY happy as they served in rotten conditions.

It was so tearful today as she spoke with us about how much our care packages meant to her. I am so glad that participated in the "Adopt a Soldier" program.  There are so many opportunities to serve others and I am so glad to be a part of a company that does.  Thanks!

Thanks, Debbie.

Appreciate your comments.

Yes, it was wonderful. 

The flag is going in a protective cover with the certificate to be a reminder for our fine military folks.

We will treasure this moment for years to come.
