Honoring Our Veterans

God Bless America & the men and women who have served or are currently serving this great country.
On this Veteran's Day, and on all days, may we remember the sacrifices that they have made...


111008 Marines
U.S. Marines poster circa 1989 featuring my brother, Rob.

...because, to quote a line from this song, Freedom isn't Free.

No one knows the sacrifices these wonderful men and women make to ensure our freedom and even just the normality of our everyday lives. They work long long hours. They aren't allowed to call in sick. They are sent to dangerous places we can't even begin to imagine. They aren't allowed to complain. I am the wife of a veteran and I have many many friends who have risked their lives so that I can go shopping at the mall or go to Starbucks and get a cup of coffee. God Bless All our Men and Women in Uniform past and present. Godspeed you safely home to the arms of the people who love you.

Thanks for the posting of that pic Sis. I would love to have a digital copy of that poster (without the arrow pointing to me, of course...:-) if you could send it to me. How did you get it in digital?

Semper Fi and I love you Sis!

Thank you for posting the beautiful video and song. It's not the first time today that I've been tearful. I am SO PROUD of our service men and women. Their sacrifices have blessed my life. May they be safe as we rest in our cozy beds. Stacy
