In honor of some of my favorite Veterans:
First my hubby Brian. He was in the Navy. He earned his GI bill to go to school and now he is teaching math to at-rick high school students. I am so proud of him.
My Daddy was in the Marines and spent two tours in Vietnam. Regardless of your views on the war, he was in a dangerous place, doing what he felt was right.
My father-in-law, who I didn't get to know, because he passed away soon after Brian and I met was in the the Army. Now, there is the opportunity for some good humored rivalry.
My Brother-in-law Paul was also in the Navy.
My uncle Ken was in the Army, as was his wife Mona.
My uncle Rick was in the Marines.
My friends Aimee's Daddy was also in the Navy. He is just one of those amazingly thoughtful men. I hope I get to meet him on of these days.
My hat's off to all of you and those who served before you, along side you, and after you to keep us safe. My thoughts are also with those who are missing a loved one today who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
