Thank You So Much, Veterans!

American Flag Veterans

I want to thank our veterans and all active duty people for your service today!  I am also remembering my own family members who served today, including my father, my brother and several uncles, including one uncle that did not come home from WWII after being held as a prisoner where he ultimately died.  Most of us cannot begin to fathom what they endured and continue to endure every day.

Today is always such a humbling day for me when I think about the many sacrifices made by those that serve and their families.  I pray that we all increasingly value their contribution for the important role they continue to play to our nation every single day.  Although many of us only say this once a year, in reality, you are in our minds and hearts and prayers all the time.

Thank You, Veterans!

American Flag Veterans

Today, I am grateful for every single person that has fought for the freedom I enjoy today, including my own father, my brother and two uncles, one that did not come home from WWII.  My relatives are all gone now, including my dear brother who died a few years ago, and I miss them all terribly.

I am also grateful for all the service dogs that have served, and still serve, alongside our military personnel.  Not only do these dogs help our soldiers do their jobs, the dogs also provide wonderful companionship to them while they are away from home.

Lastly, I am grateful to those who help to care for our veterans that have various needs when they return home.  “If we send ’em, we should mend ’em.”  Wounded Warrior Project is a good one, but I know there are many more, too.

From the bottom of my sincere heart today, I thank every single one of you. ❤
