For the Love of a Soldier

 

My friend Sarah came over the other night and we started talking about old fashioned military romance and how her grandparents met 69 years ago during WWII and still remain happily married to this day. Of course, this got me thinking about the way old fashioned love used to be.  I started to read everything from love letters dated back to 1861 (the Civil War) to WW I & II, and so on and so forth. What piqued my interest the most was the level of dedication, the loyalty, and the degree of unconditional love that these couples had for each other. The romanticism of it all touched me in a way that I find hard to put into words.

Because of the unsure world we live in today, I was convinced that this was the way of the past, and not the present or the future, but through my research I realized how truly wrong I was. I read blogs, watched movies, and even searched my local library. My conclusion was in fact motivating and inspiring. There are still significant others, married or not, whose only method of communication to their soul mate is done via pen and paper, or email.  Our world moves so quickly that we tend to take for granted the fact that we can just simply be with the ones we love.  The kind of love that I had thought only existed in fairy tales is in fact a surreal reality for many.

My first thought was, will I someday have a love like this? My second thought was what can we do to contribute to those who actually do have that kind of love? Love that outlasts everyday life struggles and can bare the burden of being apart for extended periods of time. Love that belongs in letters  or movies, and in which we will someday tell our grandchildren about.

My next move was to approach my director and request that we put together some sort of package for military families. Whether we just do a fast ceremony with a  week’s notice, or we do a full blown, 200 person, planned  a year in advance, military gala, I’d like to show  how Morey’s not only appreciates  the Military service of our men and women, but also the value of true love and building memories together that will last a lifetime.

What started as a nostalgic notion became a full blown Morey’s mission.  My director immediately gave me the authorization to contact our local vendors to see who would participate in offering discounts to honor the brave men and women who serve our country. Low and behold, every vendor I contacted was more than willing to contribute a discount in some way.

Because of such amicable results, we were able to put together numerous packages that benefit every military love story wedding. Needless to say, I am proud to work for an organization that has made my heart’s priority their own.
