Saluting My Hero, My Dad

One of my Dad’s Favorite treats is creamer with a little bit of coffee coffee and creamer.  His favorite flavor is French Vanilla. I was going to spend the day with him and look at some old photographs.  Since my Mom passed away we’ve been going through boxes of photos.  I swung by Walmart on the way to his house to grab creamer and found Coffee-Mate had these very cool bottles. Coffee-mate has decorated their French Vanilla & Hazelnut liquid creamer bottles and their Original powder creamer in patriotic stars and stripes.

In honor of our military heroes, Nestle Coffee-mate is proud to partner with Operation Homefront. Coffee-mate’s contribution helps Operation Homefront provide a wide range of support for military families.  #CMSalutingHeroes bottles will only be available at Walmart  through Independance Day while supplies last.

I found it in the dairy cooler with all the other creamers.  They even had a special case across the aisle with the extra large sizes.

Operation Homefront is an organization that helps provide  assistance to wounded military members and their families.  I think it’s an amazing organization. I also thought this was very appropriate as my Dad and I were going through his pictures from when he was a marine.

My Dad joined the marines when he was only 17.  He thought it was so important to serve his country. He fought in Vietnam and even received a purple heart for his service. I’m so proud of him and I love telling people that my dad was a Marine, Force Recon.  I admire the fact that at such a young age he wanted to serve his country and put his country before himself.

We spent several hours drinking coffee and looking through pictures. I loved hearing my dad tell me stories about his time over in Vietnam.  He hardly ever talks about it so I hung on to every word.  I loved spending time with my dad.

I’m so thankful for his service to his country and to our family.
