True Heros

Here is a post I’d like to share from FB.  My brother in law is in Afghanistan.  He found out this week that my sister’s hair was falling out and she had just shaved it to just speed the inevitable. This morning John posted this very uplifting photo and post.

KABUL, Afghanistan - Task Force Hydra Soldiers show their support for
Command Sg...t. Maj. John E. Smiley's wife Carolyn R. Smiley, who began her 2nd Chemotherapy treatment session this week. 40 male Soldiers shaved their heads in support of Carolyn who has had to do so because of the treatment.
Carolyn was diagnosed with breast cancer over Veteran's Day weekend this past year and has been undergoing cancer treatment since.
"This is great and unreal," said Command Sgt. Maj. Smiley of the support
shown by the 648th Soldiers. "I never expected this much support, it's
overwhelming."

Small acts of kindness can mean the world to someone else. It can uplift them on a bad day and let them know that they do not have to face difficulties alone. I really must find something to do for these men in appreciation.  What a great way to meet the day today.  Reading this post has really touched my heart!
