Dan Woog blogs at 06880, the zip code of Westport, CT where he, and I, live.
He posted a story about a soldier who graduated from Staples, our local high school, and West Point Academy and is now leading a platoon in Afghanistan. Dan’s original post about the soldier, Sam, brought a flood of responses and led to correspondence between Sam, his troops, and current Staples students and teachers.
I loved reading his story, and I especially loved his mention of Wounded Warriors, which I learned about when my nephew Dan got married last year. Dan is a naval officer, a graduate of Annapolis. I asked his fiancee for a suggestion of a charity he liked, so I could make a gift in his name. She gave me the name of Wounded Warriors and I did make a contribution.
I really like ‘small world’ incidents, so I was happy to read of my hometown connection to this charity.
What ‘small world’ connections have happened to you?
