Happy Veteran's Day to everyone who has served, is serving or will serve. Also thank you to those families. The rocks at home for these men and women.
My grandfather was in the Navy. Growing up all I knew was that he served in WWII and was in Pearl Harbor on that fateful day. He was aboard the USS California. He never speaks of his time in the military or of that day and what occurred afterwards. I am still so proud of him.
My husband joined the military before I ever met him. We are a Reserve family, so the military is only one portion of our lives. Most people we encounter on a daily basis do not know he is a soldier. But just like active duty, my husband has served a year long tour over seas, in a dangerous area, doing a dangerous job. We have survived it and have moved past it, but the scars still remain. I am so very proud of my husband. He is my hero. Even though he doesn't like being called a hero, he is to me and our kids. I am soooo very proud of him!
So, to all of you out there who serve our country, and those who support them, I thank you! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
Happy Veteran's Day!
|The BEST day ever!|
