    I would give it to my husband to buy Craftsmans tools , he is a mechanic and Sears is the only place he will buy his hand tools from because Sears is the only store who sells craftsman tools and honors their life time waranty full money back guareentee on ANY Craftsman hand tools. I know of tools he has had for 30 years and broke and Sears will comply & refund or exchange that same tool. So that says alot for both companys for durability & dependability on the products & the store that features them.

    My husband is a hero. He is a solider. He puts in a lot of time and hard work to keep us free. Most days it is not easy for him and the group of guys that he works with. Or for me, a lot of days, weeks, and months he is not at home (including this week). He is very proud to serve and I am so proud of him!

    My sister is a hero but on a bigger scale. She was a victim of a brutal attack by a stranger and she fought him off and kept fighting til the police arrived and were able to catch him.I would buy something for her with this card because she most likely saved lots of women by getting him put in jail.

    Some of my great grandparents and some of my great uncles served in WWII as well as Vietnam and my brother in law is a Navy man. I’ve grown up around military people. Some of my closest friends are military wives. I never know how to say what I feel when I see, first hand, the sacrifices THEY make on the home front, while their man risks everything for our country.

    It makes me humbled, proud, honored to know these people. I don’t know how I’d surprise any of them. They don’t want the praise. But I’d love to slip this into a card as a chance to give them some little token of my thanks.

    My husband is a Deputy for Pinal County and he is not only a local hero but my hero as well. We have twin boys who are 7 and triplet girls who are 2! He is the best Dad and the best Deputy! I would love to surprise him with the Sears gift card by having his dispatcher call him out to a friends house for a call just before he checks off duty and when he shows up will have a BBQ and cards from friends and others in the community telling him what a hero he is! Now that would be a good time!
