How do you show gratitude when just saying thank you isn’t enough? Pfc. Greg Seibert of Escondido, Calif. was coming home from Iraq. His family wanted to do something special to say thank you to the private. Before he left for the war he had bought an old Plymouth Fury. When he returned home his family surprised him with a newly refurbished car. They had enlisted 15 local companies to donate parts and labor and remodeled his Fury for him. When they presented it to him he said, “It means everything to me.”
