“Always Be Batman”–A Little Girl’s Advice to a Soldier.

“Always be yourself…unless you can be Batman. Always be Batman.” ~ Caitlin

We all need a little lifting up in our lives, and more so when we’re so far from home. I remember many nights spent sniffling over my own homesickness–and during my very first few years in the Army.

And, sometimes as a soldier you can begin to lose faith–that others at home truly remember.

But then, you receive the kindest words from a stranger–and suddenly your little section of the world is much, much better.

Thank you, Caitlin, for taking the time to remind our soldiers that they are not forgotten (and, that they should always be Batman).
