Veterans Day is upon us when we honor the many men and woman who have given their heart and soul for our freedoms. In my eye they are all equally important and worthy of our love and celebration. Let us never forget how much they give up for us each and every day. As we curl up, all comfy on our warm sofa and turn on our favorite television show, they sleep sitting up ready to snap awake at any moment should the need arise. They endure harsh weather conditions, hostile environments and so much more. For some of us, we can’t even imagine what it’s like to live the way they must or see the things they do.
God bless our military service personal, past and present, for all that they have done.
I come from a military family and married into a military family. I understand duty and honor, and the sacrifices made. I want to throw a shout out to my grandfather for his many years served since I know my grandmother follows this blog and can share this page with him. My grandfather was a career military man who finished his years as a Brigadier General. God Bless you Grandpa!
A special spiritual hug to my father, Captain E. Johnson. Rest in peace Daddy.
And to the rest of my service family, extended and married, that prefer to remain anonymous.
Do you have any special service men or women in your circle that you are extra proud of?
