Update: Over the weekend, our Facebook page was commented on by U.S. Navy sailor Aaron Lesseski and his fiancee, claiming that a fake “soldier” had stolen his story.
After getting in contact with Aaron Lesseski and confirming that the post was originally about his personal experience, we’ve included his original post below. We have nothing but respect for his service to this country, and we’re glad to see Aaron’s story is getting the recognition it deserves.

We’ll let the soldier’s Facebook post tell the rest of this heartwarming story:
Share his story as a message to all anti-military people that we will NEVER stop supporting our troops!
