Today I want to thank all of my friends and family members who have chosen to serve our country in the military! We have every branch covered by someone we know and love very much. I am so very proud and humbled to have these brave souls in our family circle! The Air Force, Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marines are lucky to have or have had your time and your dedication to the defense of our great nation!
My pap was so very proud of his Navy career. We were blessed this year when he passed away to have a full military color guard presentation of the flag to my grandmother. To see these young soldiers show such honor to a man who loved his Navy brought tears to my eyes.
So today it is our duty to honor and salute those active members and those that have retired from the armed forces! We should be humbled by the choice made to serve, it is an awesome responsibility.
Hug a veteran or active member and say, "THANK YOU!" For all you do!
Until next time,
