I would like to honor and thank all of the men and women who served in the Armed Forces. I have family members and friends who served in each branch of the military. Some for a few years and some for more than 30 years.
My paternal grandfather served many years in the Air Force. His brothers served in the Army, Navy, and Marines. I have two maternal uncles who served in the Army. I have cousins who served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. My husband’s brother served in the Navy for well over 25 years. Their sister followed behind their big brother, and also proudly served. My husband’s Goddaughter was in the Army, and his personal assistant is a Marine through-and-through.
I have countless loved ones who proudly served our country, and many who still do, and I humbly thank each and every one of them.
I thank the men and women who are strangers to me, but swore an oath to protect my life and my rights as not only an American, but as a human being. It takes a special kind of person to make the sacrifices that you have, that you do, and that you will. Thank you!
