Facebook user William Jazwinski recently shared a heartwarming story about an encounter with a police officer that’s worth reading.
Me- Goodmorning officer. Was i speeding?
Officer- Goodmorning, no not speeding. Just wanted to stop ya and say thank you for your service.
Me- oooh the bumper sticker, nice. Your welcome sir. My pleasure.
Officer- where did you serve?
Me- i went to Iraq. Did a 15 monther. Out of Ft Benning.
Officer- well alright. My son went to Iraq. He didnt make it home.
Me- man, im so sorry to hear that. I just finished a ptsd program.
Officer- i see you have a flag in the truck. The one we got for him! Well its at the house. Can i ask a question?
Officer- do you mind stepping out and receiving a hug. You remind me of my son. I pulled you over. I thought you were him. I still dont believe it most days hes gone.
With tears in both our eyes i got out and hugged that man. Im talking about for a minute or two crying. Down to our knees crying. I needed that.
To all the family and friends of soldiers, fighting or done fighting, God bless you. Your peace and your hearts. Its so hard without them, i know. This road is a tremendous one. Love to all.
