The holidays are best shared with family and loved ones, which is why it can be an extremely difficult time of year for those serving our country and the people who miss them most.
That’s exactly why one Florida mom, whose son is a U.S. Marine at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, was heartbroken when her son Justin Hanes told her that many of his fellow Marines from his station wouldn’t be able to make it home for the holiday and see their families.
Heidi Barfield couldn’t stop thinking about the men and women who continue to make sacrifices for our country and decided to invite about two dozen Marines who were planning on spending Thanksgiving on their own since she felt giving them a home-cooked meal was the least she could do.
“These young men and women have written a blank check to the United States of America for up to and including their life,” Barfield said about the Marines who arrived at her home on a school bus. “And if it came to that, could we peel and extra potato or a 40-pound turkey? You bet.”
