Army Veteran Gets Pulled Over By Police Officer, But Then He Points To The Front Of His Car.

anybody who has had a family member serve (or continues to serve) in the military will know that it is no easy task; not being able to chat with them, children missing their parents overseas and the imminent fear of what is happening around them.

The feeling of being reunited with a loved one brings forth a whirlwind of emotions ranging from relief to sheer exhilaration.

Sadly, not everybody makes it home safely and the grief people face from losing a friend or family member while in the line of duty is nothing short of traumatic.

William Jazwinski, a former Heavy Wheeled Vehicle Operator in the US army and he recounted the story on Facebook of when he was pulled over by a police officer.

Me: Goodmorning officer. Was I speeding?
Officer: Goodmorning, no not speeding. Just wanted to stop ya and say thank you 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 didn’t make it home.
Me: man, I’m 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, it’s at the house. Can I ask a question?
Me: Sure.
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 don’t believe it most days he’s gone.

William then went on to say: “With tears in both our eyes I got out and hugged that man. I’m 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. It’s so hard without them, I know. This road is a tremendous one. Love to all.”
