Soldier Thanks Those Who Sent Letters Of Support

Tim Kosirog, a member of the United State Air Force, visited the Woodbury Nursing Center to express his appreciation to residents who sent him cards and letters while he was in State of Qatar, an Arab emirate in the Middle East.
Kosirog, who currently lives in DeKalb County and graduated from high school there, spent one year and four months in Qatar serving as a military policeman.
He has ties to Cannon County, including an uncle and aunt, James and Kim Kosirog. Kim works at the nursing center. They live in the Bradyville community.
Kosirog has been home for about a month, and will spend another four to five months in the states before deploying overseas again.

Have you ever gone up to a complete stranger, who is obviously in the military, and said, "Thank you" to them, or pick up their tab at a restaurant?
I try to do it as often as possible.
The first time I felt stupid. A heart felt thank you, but I was embarrassed to go up to a complete stranger. That was until I did it.
My words were, "Thank you for all you do for this country."
The reply came, "I'm just doing my job, Sir."
But then there was smile from him. The kind that made me believe what I said meant more to that soldier than I thought. It made me wonder if anyone had ever thanked him before. It felt good. It felt good because I thought that I made him feel appreciated.
The next time you see a service man or woman say go up to them say thanks, see how it makes you fell!
My thanks to Tim Kosirog for defending our country and freedoms.

Thanks Tim for your service! It's amazing what a simple thank you can do for a soldier. While I was recently home on R&R, my husband and I ate at the Olive Garden in Murfeesboro. After a nice conversation with our waiter about being in Iraq, we ordered and had a nice lunch. When it came to for the check, he told me that our lunch was "on the manager", and gave me a nice thank you card. Sometimes, it really is THE LITTLE THINGS!
