110512: Military Child Salute

Military Child Salute – Brooklyn Fitzgerald
Monday, November 5, 2012

It’s time for another Military Child of the Week Salute! This is one of my favorite days of the week and today it’s a two-fold salute as we not only salute a wonderful military child but also her Daddy who is a “Wounded Hero”!

Military Child Salute – Fitzgerald Family

Please say hello to Brooklynn and the rest of her family – CPL Griffin Fitzgerald and her Mommy Tracy. Brooklynn is just a little over a year old and her Grandmother nominated her for our weekly salute. This is a picture of when Brooklynn was just born.

Isn’t she a cutie!

Brooklynn’s Daddy – CPL Fitzgerald – was injured while serving with the 1st Battalion 32nd Infantry Division when he was injured while in Afghanistan after stepping on and detonating an IED. He was initially airlifted to a military hospital in Afghanistan and then flown to an Intensive Care Unit in Germany.

A Beary Special Furry Friend For Brooklynn

Brooklynn’s Grandmother also told us she and her family recently moved to the Rochester, New York area from the Washington-Maryland area for treatment and rehab.

With that in mind we are deploying a beary special bear to Brooklynn and her family signed by the Rochester Knighthawks lacrosse team. She’s a cute little kitty-cat that players of the Knighthawks signed for us just before the start of their Championship season earlier this year!

Nominate A Military Child For Our Salute

Every Monday we love saluting a military child – whether it’s a child of a military family or in the case for today a daughter or son of a proud parent – and we are always looking for nominations. It’s easy to nominate a military child for our weekly salute too…
