Military Salute – SA Jessica Salter
Monday, October 22, 2012
Welcome to Monday and welcome to another great day for a military salute. Today the salute is slightly different. Instead of saluting a military child we are saluting a young woman who was nominated by her mother as she recently reported for duty with the U.S. Navy!
Please say hello to SA Jessica Salter. Jessica is currently a Seaman Apprentice – that’s what the SA stands for – serving with the Navy in San Diego.
We met Jessica’s Mom at a recent event we did with the local American Red Cross Chapter. It was a great gathering of military families with all kinds of military family support organizations in attendance too.
Jessica’s Mom was quite interested in the fact that my human-owner is currently deployed to Afghanistan and that not only was I his first teddy bear, but that he also has a teddy bear with him in Afghanistan keeping him company too! She quickly nominated her daughter for our salute! On the nomination form Jessica’s Mom wrote; “Jessica has a twin sister named Julie. She’s 19 years old and attended Lyons High School in Lyons, New York. Jessica was also a cheerleader and has a great personality”. Jessica’s sister said she’s very proud of her twin-sister too.
