Today is VETERANS DAY

Today is Nov. 11, 2013 and it is Veterans Day!
This day is a SPECIAL DAY for many reasons and the reasons are as follows:

My father who served in the Merchant Marines, US Navy, the SEABEES (Korean Conflict and stationed at Pearl Harbor just after Japan bombed)

My husband who served in the US Coast Guards, he had nine months left till end of his tour when he was killed. (Viet Nam Conflict, Tour on Icebreaker to Artic and Antarctic)

Three Uncles that served in the US Navy, two in W.W.II and one in Viet Nam Conflict. One lost his life, and the other two came back home; but all three were HEROES because they saved or helped save other soldiers lives! One was finally recognized for what he had done this past years. As my dad and uncles said, they weren't there to be heroes...they were there doing a job and helping their military brothers.

My oldest son in the US Navy, thankfully there were no wars or conflicts going on when he went in.

Numerous  more friends that served in one branch or the other of the US Military. Some came home and some didn't, then some came home and wished they hadn't...mainly because of what happened to them in one way or another.

My HEART FELT THANKS to each of you then and now! With out you America would not be the "UNITED STATE of AMERICA" we were born in, we would not be FREE to do what we wanted...we would not have the FREEDOM  to VOTE, LIVE, BELIEVE, PRACTICE OUR RELIGIONS, READ OUR BIBLES, OWN OUR OWN BUSINESS, say a PRAYER or PRAY together, we would not have our CONSITUTION that is for the AMERICAN PEOPLE giving us the right to have all of the above...which also gives us the rights to BEAR ARMS, TO PROTECT OURSELVES and others, which gives us the right to USE GOD'S NAME, WHICH IS WHAT THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON!

THANK YOU, EACH OF YOU THAT HAVE SERVED OR ARE SERVING IN THE MILITARY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! THANK YOU FOR OUR FREEDOM, FOR PROTECTING US AND AMERICA, THANK YOU FOR PUTTING YOUR LIFE ON THE LINE EVERY DAY FOR US AND AMERICA!

I also am very grateful to your families, I know they also go through so much for us and America!
THANK YOU FAMILIES FOR YOUR VET, INLISTED ONES, AND FOR THE ONES THAT HAVE BEEN LOST!

GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU FOR SERVING AND PROTECTING THE USA!!!!!
