Collecting $$ for Poppies

Post by photohause » Tue May 29, 2018 8:15 am

Wife and I spend four hours at the front doors at Wally’s, collecting for our AL Post.
I met a lot of generous folks.

One story I will share. A twelve year old with her mom came up to me and asked of the money would
go the help vets in need of medical treatment. I said yes it would. She gave me $10 – her mom then informed me it was her allowance she just gave me. I spend the next five minutes explaining to them about where and how the dollars would be used. I then told her about the story of the poppies in relationship to war veterans. I shook her hand ad repeated my thanks, and did the same to mom, adding she did a great job, too.

I met another young girl who’s mom had a cart full of party supplies. I asked the occasion. HS Graduation and enlistment into the marines! I then asked if she was in the HS JR ROTC program…Yes Sir she replied.
It really made my day.
What new gun my dear, this old thing?
