Giving back this holiday season

by

Today we had the pleasure of hosting lunch for over 200 members of our Armed Forces with the USO out at DFW Airport as they prepared to depart to the Middle East.  Many of the soldiers were travelling with colleagues they didn’t know, so we wanted to make the transition at the airport as easy as possible.  We kept hearing “thank yous” from them, but it was the Jones Lang LaSalle crew that is truly thankful for their service. 

Private First Class Parker was sitting with this family earlier this week in Mississippi celebrating the holiday, and next week he’ll be patrolling the streets near Kandahar in an armored vehicle subject to IED blasts each day.  While we enjoy the holidays with our families, it’s important not to forget soldiers such as Private First Class Parker’s service, sacrifice, and commitment.  I hope Santa will be making a stop in Kandahar this year.

    Great looking crew! Looks like you guys had a wonderful time and I know the soldiers appreciated the support! I had planned on being there, until something came up at the building. I hope you guys do it again soon, so I can participate.
