William Jazwinski, from New York, is a former Heavy Wheeled Vehicle Operator for the US Army, who served in Iraq. He was driving his car one day when he was pulled over by a police officer. He thought that he was speeding. The officer then asked him where he serves. Jazwinski answered that he went to Iraq. Did a 15 monther, out of Fort. Benning. The cop told him that he had a son who didn’t make it out there. Jazwinski added that he  just finished a PTSD program, and was on his way home.

It was then the cop asked for the unexpected. He asked for a hug from Jazwinski himself, as he stated to the army man that he reminded him of his deceased son.

The officer expressed that he had a hard time getting over his son’s death, and even mistook Jazwinski for him. Jazwinski was happy to oblige, and granted the man’s wish by hugging him back – sharing his grief for the fallen.

Share away, people.
