This morning I had the honor of wrapping retired Navy Veteran Timothy Williams in his Quilt of Valor and thanking him for his service. After the Navy, Tim attended Seminary. He now serves as Pastor at an upstate SC church. He also works during the week for Terminix in Columbia.
This presentation was extra special because I know Tim. He’s my “Bug Man.” You know, the folks who come to your home every quarter to spray for bugs and check those green Termite stations that surround your property.
What he anticipated to be a complaint – why else would a client be in the office at 7:30 standing with management and the office staff? – turned out to be the best part of his day. Tim is proud he served and would serve again if asked.
If anyone believes that war hardened Sailors don’t get emotional, they’re wrong.
