102212: Military Salute

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!

Military Monday Salute - Navy SA Salter

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.

Of course one of the most exciting things we do here is salute military children!

Today we say a big two paws up to and salute Caroline Konopa! Caroline – who’s also known as Charlie – is a wonderful little girl living in San Diego with her Mommy and Daddy.

We met Charlie and her parents at the Holiday Christmas Bonanza in December 2011. We met so many wonderful families and little boys and girls connected with the Armory and every branch of the military stationed in San Diego, CA.

Caroline’s Mommy told us she’s “kind of shy and very smart. Charlie also loves books and dolls and playing outside!”
