Veterans Day

The phone rang early this morning and it was our son calling my favorite veteran, BG, to thank him for his service.  Many in our family served our country including BG's father who was an army veteran and fought in World War II, his uncle was a prisoner of war for 3 long years during the Korean War, my uncle was in the Navy during World War II, my older brother was a member of the National Guard, BG's brother is an Army veteran, and so many others that I won't list here.  

My heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes out to each and everyone who served our country.  Let us never forget that our freedom isn't free.

Happy Veterans Day,

P.S.  I'd like to say to those rioting and protesting the election, please remember those who fought for your freedom regardless of who the president was at the time.  When they were called to serve, they did so without complaint and served bravely with many giving their lives for ALL of us.       


  1. Amen! We need to unite and stand strong as a country whether your candidate was elected or not. We are the whole of our sum and need to be one!
    Beautiful post here! Blessings- xo Diana

  2. What a sweet son you have! You must have raised him right.

  3. You are in a family of heroes! Yes, I think that if some had any idea of the horrors of wars, they would not protest. These men fought for us, and for their lives.

  4. Amen!!!! Wonderful son you have,Happy Veteran's Day,Hugs Francine.

  5. Well said, my friend.
    We have many friends and family as well who have risked it all.
    Thank you for this post!!

  6. That was a nice way to start the day! Love this graphic with all the men and women up through the years who provided us with a foundation for freedom. You were very nice to those protestors. I'd like to say something else entirely. LOL!

  7. agree with you Cheryl, we are a nation divided and we need to stand together, we do not want to end up like we did in the Civil War.

  8. Thanking our service men is something every American can get behind. Should be more than one day a year.

  9. Thanks for your Veterans Day Post. I too have many within our family who served in the armed forces. My Grandfather was killed in France in World War I, I love this great country and feel so sad for how some are treating our freedoms that have been fought for so valiantly. Blessings and hugs for this one!

  10. we have many veterans in our family and we're all disgusted by the rioting. there is no excuse for burning our flag and acting like wild animals.
    I believe our country has a Bright Future! :)
