Military Wife Receives Letter From Harley-Davidson, Floored By What It Says (Photos)

It’s hard enough to be without your husband who is overseas, and feeling like you’re all alone. But the people in Jaime Walter’s Illinois town tried to make it easier for her. According to WQAD, Walters broke down and cried after opening a letter from Reiman’s Harley Davidson. She realized that she wasn’t alone.

“I was overwhelmed,” Jaime told WQAD.

She had sent in a check for her husband’s motorcycle storage fee days before receiving the letter. Her husband, Christopher Walters, was deployed overseas and put his motorcycle in storage before he left.

When she opened the letter, she saw her check and a note that read:

“Dear Christopher and Jaime,

Enclosed you will find the check you mailed to us regarding the account of Christopher. It is the policy of Reiman’s Harley-Davidson to waive storage fees for our active duty service members who are deployed. It is our honor to keep your bike safe and secure while you provide us with our freedoms. We hope you return to us safe and sound. Until that time, we will store your bike at no charge to you. This is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ for your service to our country.

Sincerely, C. Dennis Packee
Dealer Principal”

Walter was filled with joy.

“I was so grateful and thankful that someone recognized our troops and doesn’t just say, ‘we support our troops,’ they physically show it,” Jaime told WQAD.
