William Jazwinski, a United States Army Veteran, was returning from a PTSD program when he saw blue lights in his rear view mirror.
Jazwinski wasn’t speeding, or texting, or doing anything out of the ordinary.
When the officer approached his window, the young veteran had all of his paperwork ready, but that wasn’t what the officer wanted to talk about.
What happened next left Jazwinski so overwhelmed he posted the ordeal on his Facebook page to share with the world,
Me- Goodmorning officer. Was i speeding?
Officer- Goodmorning, no not speeding. Just wanted to stop ya and say thankyou for your service.
Me- oooh the bumper sticker, nice. Your welcome sir. My pleasure.
Officer- where did you serve?
Me- i went to Iraq. Did a 15 monther. Out of Ft Benning.
Officer- well alright. My son went to Iraq. He didnt make it home.
Me- man, im so sorry to hear that. I just finished a ptsd program.
Officer- i see you have a flag in the truck. The one we got for him! Well its at the house. Can i ask a question?
Officer- do you mind stepping out and receiving a hug. You remind me of my son. I pulled you over. I thought you were him. I still dont believe it most days hes gone.
With tears in both our eyes i got out and hugged that man. Im talking about for a minute or two crying. Down to our knees crying. I needed that.
To all the family and friends of soldiers, fighting or done fighting, God bless you. Your peace and your hearts. Its so hard without them, i know. This road is a tremendous one. Love to all.
