Remember The Night

Remember The Night

The Few. The Strong. The Brave.

Cody Jenkins thought serving in the military would help him escape heartbreak, but he never imagined meeting a woman like Evelyn. The only problem? After spending one unforgettable night together, she returned to her life far away from him and his service in the Army.

Perfection defines Evelyn Walters every moment, every day of her entire life. But with a recent divorce from her husband and a career in jeopardy, maintaining that carefully constructed façade is proving to be her biggest challenge yet.

A chance encounter at her sister’s wedding brings Evelyn face-to-face with Cody again, and sparks fly as memories of their night together prove a powerful force. But troubles from his past and problems from her present threaten to keep them apart. Will they give in to their personal demons or will they remember the night that proved, without a doubt, they are better together than they will ever be apart?

Celebrating Real World Heroes – Pt 4

20150924_181218

In past celebrations of real world heroes, we’ve had some beautiful love stories and also spoke of the family sacrifice necessary for those who love the men and women who serve. Today, we are privileged to have both of those elements in our story.

Private 1st class, James Lee Phillips, turned 18 in July, 1944 and was drafted the following month. After completing 17 weeks of training, he was then allowed to go home for 7 days. With only one week to see his family and loved ones, he then said goodbye as he headed to Europe via the ship Queen Elizabeth where he became a truck driver for the Army.  He served overseas for 18 months.

During his time away, his family ‚Äď knowing how much he must be missing home – would send him packages with deli meat/sausages.¬† When he finally returned home, he met a woman who he fell madly in love with. They had their first date on Valentine’s Day.¬† He took her home to meet his parents who were delighted to discover that she worked at the same deli his mother shopped at to send him the sausage. The family fell in love with her just as Private Phillips had and they were wed St. Patrick’s Day the same year they met (If you aren’t sure of the math…that’s 31 days later!!). The marriage has withstood the test of time and they are still married today, 63 years later.

As is the case in many families, the desire to serve runs from generation to generation. This year, James’ grandson, who served in the ROTC through college and received the ranking of 2nd Lieutenant was commissioned into the US Army National Guard. As part of the ceremony, he gave his first salute to his Grandfather, James Lee Phillips, World War II Veteran. His mother attests to the fact there wasn‚Äôt a dry eye in the place! They received a standing ovation.

 

Dan and his grampa

We thank this week’s real world hero, Private Phillips, for serving during World War II and for instilling the same call to duty and desire to serve in the generations that followed.

How many of you come from families were multiple generations have served?

Celebrating Real World Heroes – Pt 2

Today as we celebrate our real world heroes, I have another beautiful love story to share!¬† This story is courtesy of Holly Van Howe.¬† Her grandfather, Peter Paul Welko ‚Äď known to Holly and the family as Grandpa Moonie, started his service to our country stateside in the Army (Calvary) before WWII.

After he was discharged, he asked the love of his life, Josephine, to marry him and spend the rest of their lives together. On the morning of December 7, 1941 Pete and Jo learned, along with the rest of America, about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Knowing what he had to be done, Pete and Jo married THAT afternoon.

A few days later, Pete enlisted ‚Äď in the Navy this time ‚Äď and served as a SeaBee in the Pacific and Guadalcanal.

 

 

 

 

He served his time in the Navy and returned home to Josephine to start their family. They had two sons, Paul and Robert, and celebrated over 50 years together. 1002409_10200789951165397_1688492830_n

We salute this hero and the other brave men and women who fought to defend our country after the attack on Pearl Harbor. They put their lives on hold to protect our land. Thank you to SeaBee Peter Welko for being a real world hero!!

 

Celebrating Real World Heroes!

Pat hubby 2

This hero is a picture of one of my lovely readers, Pat Saltzgaber’s, husband.  Her hero, ABH3 Robert M Saltzgaber, Jr, served in the US Navy aboard the aircraft carrier, The Intrepid (now a museum in New York harbor). He worked on the flight deck from 1965-1968 during the Vietnam War.

In true romantic fashion, Robert and Pat were married in Feb 1968. He had been informed by Uncle Sam that he would not have to return to Vietnam. However, when he reported in after his leave, he received word that he would be shipped back to the war zone to finish his tour.

For the first seven months of their marriage, Pat waited at home for letters (which, she shares, Robert was very faithful in writing to her!) until finally in September of 1968, his time was up and he got to come home to her waiting arms.  In the first seven months of their married life, they spent only twenty-eight days together!!  Talk about love being patient and always persevering!

I’m happy to report that Pat and her hero have been married for 47 years now!  What a wonderful story of a hero and the woman he loves.  *happy sighs* I do love happily ever after!

Thank you Pat for sharing your pictures and story of your real world hero with us!

 

I’d love to hear about YOUR real world hero (or heroine for the guys!). Please feel free to comment or send the info to me and I’d love to include your story in this segment!
