112612: Military Child Salute

Military Child Salute – Cessy & Colin Charette
Monday, November 26, 2012

Our favorite day here at General Sarge HQ as we salute a special military child! Today we’re saluting a sister and brother who’s Daddy – SSGT Charette – is an active duty Marine currently deployed with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit!

We received a very nice email from Cessy and Colin’s Mommy who nominated them for our salute.

First we say hello to and salute Cessy! Her Mommy said she’s also known as “Princess, Barbie, Butterfly and Super Sweet Little Pumpkin!”

Isn’t she a cutie! It’s look Cessy is all ready for the cold weather too as she’s decked out in her mittens and wonderful little pink ear muffs! Cessy’s mother also told us she “loves riding her bike which is something she has learned since Daddy’s been gone, playing with baby’s and Barbies! She of course also loves hanging out with her big brother and talks about her Daddy everyday and can’t wait to see him!”

Speaking of Cessy’s big brother – this is Colin Charette!

Colin’s Mommy writes; “This little dude is 4 years old and in preschool. SSGT Charette deployed about 7 months ago”. Colin’s Mommy also told us “Colin is a VERY energetic kid who loves Legos and superheroes. He also enjoys school and has tons of friends. Since his Daddy’s been gone Colin has learned to ride his bike with no training wheels and is super excited to show of his new ‘trick’ when his Daddy gets home!”

We are very proud of both Cessy and Colin and consider it an honor and privilege to salute them today!

Military Child Salute – Brianna Burkett

Brianna’s mom writes – “Brianna is a Hero in her own way. She was born with a rare genetic disease called Canavan Leukodystrophy. Most children with this normally live between 3-10 years of age with some making it into their teens. Brianna was blessed to turn 18 this past September and is currently a senior in High School”.

Brianna’s mom further wrote – “When Donika was in Marine bootcamp two years ago she sent a letter saying; ‘When things get tough, she thinks of her sister and her willpower to fight this disease. That would give Donika the willpower to stay strong and see it through bootcamp”.
