Military Salute of The Week
July 23, 2012
Today our weekly Military Salute takes on a slightly different twist. We usually salute a military child, but there are many incredible military people to salute.
As a result, today we say a big “Two paws up” and salute new recruit Josh Plyter from Williamson, New York. Josh just reported for Basic Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Following in his Dad’s footsteps, Josh joined the Army after graduating from High School and now begins his career with the Military Police.
This is a great picture of Josh and his Mom at a big going away party they had for him before it was time to board the plane and head for Missouri.
A Stealth Sarge For His Mom
When my human-owners Mom found out about Josh she decided it was a good idea to deploy a teddy bear to his Mom. After all, she knows the importance of teddy bear hugs when a son heads off to Basic Training! It can be hard for a Mom and we are sure Stealth will be a great comfort to Josh’s Mom in the days ahead.
If you’d like to nominate a military child for our weekly salute it’s very easy to do! Each child that is nominated is also eligible to receive one of our special Build-A-Bear Workshop Military Teddy Bears too made possible through our Gift-A-Bear Campaign.
Two paws up!
