Thank you first responders!

by T. Pierce on 9/8/17 1:33 PM

Boots, BDUs, undershirts, ID tags, and a bible are all packed in a tan rucksack. Dad is ready to go on his deployment. This is a familiar scene for many and one that I think of often when I read the news and think of soldiers heading to war, serving the nation and putting others first.

For a solider, it’s what you do. It’s what your family does. Putting others first is always the mission. The first responder shares this mission but is often overlooked and under appreciated. While we clap for soldiers during Veteran’s Day we often forget about the fire fighters, doctors, nurses and police who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to help their community.

To encourage our first responders who are deploying to South Texas after hurricane Harvey’s destruction, PIERCE and the Henrietta ISD signed PIERCE coolers with encouraging messages to the Wichita Falls Fire Department.

As you pack up your boots and PIERCE cooler and head to South Texas please know we are so grateful and we're pulling for you. Take a look at our photos and video below >
