Join with us – When They Come Back – Let’s Give Back!

The very first time I saw the girls of the Boot Campaign ( – I was immediately drawn into their circle!  I have a link to their campaign with a short video at top right.   I invite you to PLEASE watch it and get YOUR boots on!  So far Team Thaxton has purchased 14 pair of boots, with 4 more being purchased today! 

The majority of my clients are military so there is a natural pull, of course, to participate in the Boot Campaign.  In fact it was an HONOR  to be listed as the #6 loan professional in the nation for VA loans in 2010.  Top VA Lender

I truly do have a TEAM in place that not only believes in “Serving Those Who Serve” but they put “boots” to those words with the service they provide to our military clients.

Every day, our clients come to us, with THEIR boots on,  to purchase a home before they are deployed, after they have come BACK from deployment, or their spouse purchases WHILE they are deployed.

When our first shipment of boots from the Boot Campaign arrived, my team was so excited.   Now we could – at least PHYSICALLY – and for a MINUTE or HOUR or even a DAY  walk a little in their boots.  First Fridays at Fairway are now  “Get Your Boots On!”

We have seen first hand, the wounds that war can inflict on human lives.  Whether  it be loss of  life, loss of  limb, loss of family, or for some loss of peace, we want to be a team that gives BACK to those who have lost.

It is an HONOR to be a part of the Boot Campaign – $25.00 of every purchase goes to projects supporting our wounded warriors.  It seems as if it really is the very LEAST we can do. 

Our men and women of the United States Military give us so much – when they come back – Let’s give back!

    There are no words to describe who I feel right now. I can’t believe our little campaign has caught the attention of so many people like you.

    Thank you for supporting our troops and thank you for helping us spread the word about the Boot Campaign. If we can get boots on 1 million Americans, we will have been able to raise support funds for SO SO many veterans who need us!

    It is the least we can do for them after what they have done for us

    Boots On!

    It is the greatest feeling to belong to an AWESOME organization lead by a great woman who holds strong to her convictions!!

    When Louise shared with me what she had found out about the Boot Campaign, she was so excited you could see it in her eyes and hear it in her voice. That really touched me deep, being a military spouse, you hear so many talk about supporting our troops…but not only does you talk the talk but she also walks the walk!!! I love that she has brought awarness to this great cause HOORAY LOUISE!!!!

    I truly agree with post made by Leti Icmat… I have worked for Louse Thaxton since August 2007, she is amazing! We love our military family’s … they give so much for each of us and our country. “Team Thaxton” appreciates our troups and we go the extra mile to get our military families in a home as soon as possible.
    Get you boot on and support our troups!

    In this world of chaos and self imposed busyness it is so easy to forget those who have put aside their own personal gain for the good of our country. Each of us owes a huge debt of gratitude to the men and women who have answered the call to fight for us all. As these warriors come home with scars both internal and external it seems the least we can do to both honor them and help them heal. The Boot campaign is an amazing way to let everyone know where we “stand”. I am honored to become a part of something so much larger than myself and provide the tiniest bit of comfort for those who have given up so much for me. Thank you for picking up this torch and shining such a bright light where it needs to be. Mimi Kelly
