What Brought them back together was the story of their veteran friends, the Smiths.
The Smiths live in Friendswood Texas and this area has been heavily impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The water came up so quickly that they had to be rescued by boat. They were only able to bring with them the clothes they were wearing and their two dogs. When they left their home, all the furniture was floating, vehicles submerged and everything was destroyed.
Shannon and her husband Jason have spent most lot of their lives taking care of everyone else while serving in the U.S. military. Shannon is a disabled veteran and Jason is still working hard to serve our country in the military. They are parents to two incredible children Jessica is 13, and Sean is 8. They had just started a new school year and are now faced with having lost all of their possessions.
Now it is time to give back to the ones who serve us.
