A Gigantic Thank You To Our Soldiers

Yesterday, I got to witness a very powerful moment that nearly brought me to tears with pride for my country and gratefulness for those that defend it.

Fairway Mortgage, where my wife Laura Franks (https://www.facebook.com/LauraFranksLoans) is a mortgage loan officer hosted a learning event for us Realtors to better serve those in the military.
That was great information--and along with some films and stories of our soldiers--it was a reminder of the sacrifices that you/they make on our behalf. It was amazing.
At the end of the class, Fairway presented an extraordinary young man a mortgage free home!
This clip tells a little about Khanh Nguyen's experience. Please take a look.

Wow. Again, it makes me so grateful that people like this make the very freedom I enjoy possible.
If you are reading this, and in our military--or a veteran of our military--please accept our humble thank you.
It is an honor to serve those that serve.
