What did you see in Wal-Mart that has the whole country buzzing because you replicated it.
Well at Wal-Mart we saw some wounded -- signs.
And we use that opportunity to follow -- private sector lead.
And those signs around our county office buildings and those sides essentially said reserved parking spot to premier locations.
Four wounded warriors.
That's right and an -- look anywhere the -- of three major United States Marine Corps bases.
We have about a 185000.
Persons and are counting.
45000 of them are active duty troops so every day when we go through town or go to our beach accesses.

And they've given so much for us.
This is just a small gesture to to help them as they take advantage of our government services so I think it's great everyone in the studio believes it's great I imagine throughout this building things it's great.

We've had emails Facebook.
Lots of comments from people around the country and I I hope that people will remember that.
Those persons that have given so much in terms of years of their lives in service and and then have been wounded.
In combat for us deserve recognition and they deserve assistance.
From the rest of our country do you worry that as we focus on the economy less about the wars if you're forgetting the sacrifice is still happening on a daily basis.
I believe in in some communities that is the case.
In on slow and eastern North Carolina we like -- -- are around our military members there are friends or family or neighbors and so we are reminded on a daily basis of what they do for us.
But I believe that it's important as we move forward and end the life span of this country.
That we know how the country was created that was in the sacrifice of our forefathers and I would love for people to to replicate -- you guys are doing for your caddie and Wal-Mart -- in your town.
Jeff Watson thanks so much.
