Each year, Lexington Medical Center looks forward to creating a new Christmas commercial. The 2011 edition salutes members of the Armed Forces and their families.
The woman featured in the commercial is not an actress. She’s LMC nurse Jeanie Lyle, who takes care of patients recovering from surgery. Two of her sons, Todd and Wes, serve in the military.
Todd, age 31, is a Citadel graduate and Captain in the Army National Guard who flies army helicopters. He’s serving in Iraq and Kuwait now.
Wes, age 25, is a platoon leader in the Army, currently serving in Southern Afghanistan as an officer with the 125th Infantry Division.
Jeanie is married to Dr. David Lyle of Lexington Family Practice, who is a retired Lt. Colonel from the Army Reserves. In total, the couple has four children.
Despite the fact that she had no acting experience, Jeanie was an excellent choice to play the role she did in the commercial. We thank her and her family for their military service and keep them in our thoughts over the holidays, and always.
The commercial will air in the Midlands from now until Christmas.
