Thank you on Veterans Day!!!

I am so grateful to the men and women who have sacrificed to defend and build this great nation. I am also thankful and indebted to the families who have, and continue to, stand behind the brave men and women of our armed forces.  Our nation is blessed and I am so glad to be an American.  I am especially proud of two of my hero's and want to say Thank You to them for making my world a safer and better place.
My Father-in-love, who served in the U.S. Air Force. 
I know what kind of man he is by the quality of the sons he reared! 
Thank you, Papaw!
And my Daddy,
who was away from me for the 1st year of  my life
 because he was in Vietnam.
He was recognized for heroism during military operations against hostile forces with 3 commendation medals and 3 bronze stars. He was stationed at Chu Chi home base during his tour in 69-70.


Take time today to thank a Veteran and our currently serving Service Men and Women
(and their families.) 
They are the reason we are free!
