I am a multi-generation Military brat. My Grandfather was in the Army during the Korean War. My Dad was in the Navy for 17 years. My Husband was in the Army & spent 3 months in Kuwait during the first Gulf War. My Brother was in the Marines. My baby Brother is in the Army National Guard. My Dad is now in the Army National Guard & is serving in Afghanistan until January.
I am so proud to be a Military brat. I am very proud of every single member of my family who has served for this country. I am very proud to say that I have a family member who has served in all branches of the Military except the Coast Guard & the Air Force. My family mean so much to me!
The Memorial Day please stop to take a moment to Thank God for all of our soldiers & their familes. Remember that for every soldier who is in the Military, there is a family at home praying that they will stay safe & come home in one piece. For every soldier, there is a family who doesn't want to watch the news for fear that they will hear of their loved ones base being bombed.
This Memorial Day, remember those soldiers from wars gone by who have given their loves in order to give us the freedom that we have today!
This Memorial Day, if you see a soldier, please shake their hand & thank them for their service to our wonderful country!!!
