How does it feel to be a soldier's mom?

Jodi St. Clair is a soldier's mom. Her older son Jacob, 22, is currently serving in the Army in Korea. Her younger son, Daniel, 20, is stationed in North Carolina. She lives in Sun City, Arizona, and misses them both. So she put a few stickers on her car that say "Proud Parent of a soldier" and "My sons defend our freedom."  Often folks react to these stickers, and not always in a nice way. But something happened recently that brought her to (happy) tears.

She had just finished her shift at the hair salon where she works, and when she walked out to her car she noticed a note under the windshield wiper. She assumed it was an advertisement, but as she got closer, she noticed a $20 bill tucked inside. The note said in part, "Dear proud parent, please send this $20 to your Army soldier for a meal, or, if he/she is in the Middle East, use it to send them a comfort kit. I pray for our military around the world every night, especially those serving in dangerous areas. Godspeed." Jodi says this kind gesture meant the world to her.
