"Cheese" Burger is a veteran here in Atlanta that works for
Coca-Cola in the Worldwide Military Customer Team.
Sheryle is a great American.
She has served her country both abroad
and here on our own soil.
Her two career goals when she was a child:
“Serve My Country and work for Coke!”
On 9/11 when the USA was brought to its
knees as we saw our politicians and others standing proud and being
united, "Cheese" took her own
personal stand. She made a vow to wear
the American Flag every day for every life lost that terrible day.
On September 12, 2001 "Cheese"
donned a small U.S. Flag on the left arm of her shirtsleeve and has
done so each day since.
Sheryle says that the flag will be worn
until the last life has been memorialized, one day at a time.
In this small but touching way she reminds
us both of our loss and also our responsibility to honor America.
"Cheese" also is very active
in participating in the USO at the
Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.
She has been over to the airport so many
times with her group from Coca-Cola, (Worldwide Military Customer Team)
bringing the goodwill and thanks many of us feel, to people who serve
in the armed forces as they travel. Upcoming on September 6, 2007 "Cheese"
and other representatives from Coke and several members of the Atlanta
Air Cargo Association will visit the USO to welcome home our courageous
soldiers and shake the hands of those that are going off to defend our
I am so proud to be a friend of Cheese
and want the families and friends of the victims of 9/11 to know that
elsewhere their loss is not forgotten.
Here in Atlanta, many miles away from
ground zero, a wonderful, giving lady takes time every morning to don
a shirt with a small flag.
Cheese says a short prayer, and goes out
into the world honoring a lost life for the day.
Her strength and caring make all of us
