Feel Proud that our Combined Communities Unite in Honoring these Brave American Veterans and their Families
At Operation SEAS The Day, our Community has been rewarded beyond our Warrior Beach week. Bonding within families and between families is a bonus to us all as these Heroes continue the healing process. Here are a few notes received by those who participated in 2017.
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the rays of sunshine you put back into our lives. I cannot begin to tell you when the last time was we laughed, smiled, and relaxed as a family. … There are not words to tell you how much of a difference you have made in our lives. I want you to know the entire time I was in Bethany was the first time since I returned from Iraq that I did not have a nightmare. God bless you.”
“Thank you so much for your generous heart. Thank you does not seem like it’s enough. This week got my husband out into public settings. It allowed my children to enjoy themselves and be so spoiled. And it gave me hope”.
“… I cannot remember when I was not stressed out worrying where I had to be at what time. Just sitting on the beach with the sun on my face with no cares in the world or sitting on the beach at night in front of the bonfire were both awesome. THANK YOU!”
“How do we thank everyone who did so much and worked so hard to make sure our family (and 24 others) had a fantastic time?? There is just too much to be thankful for – food, fun, hospitality, generosity, sun, fresh air, and the chance to do as much or as little as we chose. Perfection!”
“Our favorite memory was the parade ride. My husband got really choked up seeing how many people came out to wave at him and the other Warriors. He was flabbergasted and moved to near tears (I was, too). Thank you for that moment of pure love and appreciation!!!! It meant the world to him, and to me.”
