This is one of my favorite holidays b/c it honors Americans that make sacrifices to protect my way of life. I was blessed to be born with 2 Air Force Veterans as parents, and granddaughter & sister to Army Veterans.
Most little girls grow up with the dream of being a Princess, Model, Actress, Singer, Nurse, Lawyer, etc...but as far back as I can remember, the only dream I had was to be in the military.
With knee surgery at 16, and arthritis in my spine by age 18, I knew that this is something that would never be accomplished...but I have the privilege of being an Army wife.
I am thankful for every opportunity I have had over the past 7 years to serve our soldiers and their families. No matter how much effort I was able to put into a project, I am forever indebted to our men & women that protect my freedom everyday. I have been blessed with meeting amazing people, and with friendships that I know will out last any deployment or PCS/ETS!
Please take the time to thank our veterans for their sacrifice and duty.
And...to those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
