Charley Barnes Receives Most Honorable Gift This Week [POLL]

I have been honored with some humbling gifts in my years. Today was another one of those days when I got to work and checked my mail.

A friend of mine, Shawn “Bear” Tyrrell from Bailey, Colorado, has been a Facebook friend for awhile now and has followed my charity work for our military with great interest. Shawn has on more than one occasion assured me that as a Veteran, knowing I have never served, considers me one of their own. Shawn is not the only one to say things along those lines but it still doesn’t make me a Veteran.

Too say I am humbled by that is an understatement and as honored as I am, I am no Veteran, I’m just one of the biggest Patriots you’ll ever know.

So, here is my dilemma. These pins were given to me directly off his uniform as his way of saying thank you, knowing I will honor them with the pride he knows I have for our military and it’s history. The wings are his Crew Chief Wings that he has worn since 1988 and the Aviation pin was what they wore on their dress uniforms.

I know “Bear” wouldn’t send me these pins if he didn’t want me to have them but I have this feeling of guilt that I need your help with. Should I or should I not wear these pins. Please cast your vote below.
