Patriot of the Month

Laura O. and Family

Texas

This month we would like to honor Laura O. and her Army family. Despite the challenges associated with deployments and separation they maintain a committed patriotic spirit we greatly admire.

Laura’s husband Jeremiah has served our country in the Army for over 19 years. Throughout these years, Jeremiah has been deployed three times and the family, including children Summer (8) and Ethan (5) have relocated their lives frequently. In fact, Summer moved six times in eight years, and has attended 6 schools prior to the 5th grade! When we spoke with Laura, she told us “even though we have been taken away from our family, we would not change being in the military.” She told us after Jeremiah’s deployments, there is nothing better than the “Welcome Home Ceremony.”

Summer and Ethan are big fans of the Rush Revere Series, and have read the series three times! Summer often goes to sleep holding Liberty the Horse plush. Thanks to their grandmother being a huge Rush Limbaugh show fan, they receive the latest books in the series soon after they are announced on air! (Laura told us she is so thankful for the series about history because she feels the subject is not taught well enough in school. She feels it is so important for young Americans to truly understand the freedoms our military is fighting to defend.)

Congratulations Laura and Family on being inducted into the Rush Revere Hall of Patriots! We are eternally grateful to you.
