Sending out a huge THANK YOU to all the men and women who have served in the military.
As I drive through our tiny little town, I see our symbol of freedom flying on many flag poles free standing in the middle of property and those attached to houses. One thing I have seen out here, is a strong sense of patriotism. This Veterans Day I also see a huge flag between two cranes waiting to be hoisted…waiting for a particular veteran who will be moving to our little town and will be celebrated today. He is a young man who came home from the war minus three limbs. His home was built specifically for his needs.
We are grateful to him and to all of our veterans in our town and in the U.S. for keeping us safe, for the sacrifices they and their families make, for helping citizens of war torn countries rebuild their towns, schools, and their lives, and for all the other things they do that we know nothing about.
My husband’s family has three generations who have served in the military and my dad and many of his brothers also served. One of my dreams from the time my daughter was 18 months old, was to serve in the Air Force. For me, though it was a pipe dream as I would never be accepted because of my birth defects. A girl can dream though, right?!
Today is a day to remember our members of the military and to remind ourselves how grateful we are for their service and how safe and protected we feel because of them. 🇺🇸❣️🇺🇸
