A tribute

Today on Veteran's Day, I would like to take the opportunity to thank those who have served our great country. My father was a veteran of WWII, my husband is a veteran who served in Desert Storm and was a career Army man.

When I met my husband, he was ending his career in the Army, finishing up his last few drills with the National Guard and I was thankful indeed that he was no longer required to go and serve our country. I am so proud of him, he is strong and he made great sacrifices during his active time in the Army. He spent months and months away without seeing his children and his wife. Sometimes when we are in our comfy bed at night, he'll make a comment about how he could never do the things now that he did back then, like go 45 days without a shower or sleep on the ground for days at time or go days without sleep, things he did then, without a second thought. He credits the Army for giving him his strong work ethic, for making him the man he is today, the man that I am so thankful to have in my life.

I also want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments about my post yesterday, thank you for lifting me up. I appreciate you all so much. I hope you all have a wonderful day and as we are enjoying the freedoms that we so often take for granted, please remember the men and women who sacrificed so much to insure them.

Big Hugs,
