|MSL Gives Back
On Friday, December 19th 2008 my family was both honored and touched to witness the homecoming of our neighbor, SSG Jose Pequeño, United States Army. He was deployed to Iraq in 2005 and today is considered one of the most severely wounded American servicemen to return home from either of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The homecoming was truly touching. Streets were lined with cars and motorcycles filled with fellow servicemen and decorated with American flags. That same evening I mentioned to my family that it was our turn for the MSL Gives Back donation. Simultaneously my boys suggested that we do something special for the Veterans. So, we did just that. On Christmas Eve, we passed out dozens of pies and cookies at the Tampa Veterans Hospital with a note attached that simply said "Thank You".
Thank you to MSL for allowing me to share this experience with my family.
