On tonight’s edition of Follow the Money on the Fox Business Network, Eric Bolling featured a group of real American heroes and patriots who, year-round, stand at the ready to greet America’s Military heroes as they return home, flying into the airport at Bangor Maine. The “Maine Troop Greeters” are the focus of a movie called “The Way We Get By,” which is based on their experiences greeting the troops as they return home from the Middle East.
What a heart-warming story. And what dedication! This group is ready round-the-clock, with an early shift that gets to the airport for the first flight of each day.
BONUS: Check out the trailer for this movie. If you don’t at least get a lump in your throat, you ain’t human.
Mike Huckabee had return guest, Josh Revak, on the show this weekend to play his tribute song for the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts, which take wounded warriors on big game hunts in Alaska. The fund was named after his close friend, Shane Woods, who was killed in the Iraq war. Shane grew up in Alaska, and these hunts help wounded vets transition back to civilian life, letting them feel once more like warriors.
The song he performed this weekend was one called “Sandcastles,” which he and his friend 1st Sgt. Aaron D. Jagger wrote together for a memorial service in Iraq. Before they could write another song together, Aaron was killed in an attack which also injured Josh, but Josh survived – Aaron didn’t.
100% of the proceeds for the music at JoshRevak will go to the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts. Please go listen to the songs there and download one or two.
Laura Bush is one classy lady. She and her daughters are still public treasures. God bless the Bush family. All three of them appeared on Oprah today to discuss the release of Laura’s Memoir “Spoken From the Heart” which is out today.
Like I said, this family is one class act. The whole Bush family is extremely gracious. Do you think the current FLOTUS tries to sneak out of the White House to go to Target? Do you think the current First Family pays for their own meals? I’ll leave that question open for you. Regardless of all that, I truly miss George W. Bush as President, and I miss Laura and their daughters.
