Long but Worth a Read BTW, Thanks Troops!


There's a group of ladies in the Dallas area who make and stuff neck pillows
for soldiers coming through DFW airport.

They go to the airport and meet the incoming planes every week and greet the soldiers coming back for a few weeks R&R, give them a pillow, tell them they pray for them, and thank them for their service.

The lady who took the pictures said everyone was so surprised to see George and Laura Bush recently just standing quietly in the waiting area with
others who come to meet the troop planes.

She said it was amazing to watch the faces of the soldiers light up in
recognition when they spotted them, and that many came over to speak and
shake hands.

Enlighten me if any of you can remember any ex-president
and wife that stood in line at an airport to greet our servicemen
and women as they are coming home.

Definitely a big difference between talkers and doers.

I'd heard this story a while back ... but love that you've posted it!
Mine may be an unpopular comment, but I'm so grateful for George H. and Laura Bush.
Heck, whoever ... whenever, I'm grateful for those men and women to share their time at the airport, making a difference!
