Sticks for the Troops

I got a call the other day from a friend, telling me a very interesting story.  Apparently, some troops stationed in Afghanistan are huge hockey fans.  While that’s not unusual, the circumstances were.  We found out that these guys have been playing hockey over there with almost no gear!  They were stuck with just a couple of crappy old sticks and a puck made of tape!  This doesn’t work for me.

So, we got together with our friends over at Fox Sports Midwest to get a “care package” put together for these men and women.  FSMW brought us bags of swag, with some Cardinals and Blues gear.  We went out and picked up a couple dozen hockey sticks, pucks and practice balls for them to use.  Then we packaged the whole thing together yesterday and shipped it off to the troops in Afghanistan.

The whole thing has been a great way for us to show how much we respect and appreciate our troops.  These soldiers are putting their lives on the line for us every day, fighting our enemies abroad.  They deserve to have their downtime with some legit gear.

We also show our appreciation for the military with our Hero.Loan program.  We are excited to help our military members, veterans and their families get the best rates with the quickest turn times on VA Loans.  Where most mortgage lenders take up to 120 days to close a VA Loan, we can do it in 14 days.  We have the highest delegation from the VA and can process, underwrite and close VA loans in house, giving us that incredible speed.
