Thank You Veterans!

Veterans Day holds a unique significance for me. Why? Veterans Day is extra special to me because many of the men in my family served in different branches of the military at one time or another.

My dad served in the Army as an MP during World War II. My oldest brother served in the Army during the Vietnam war. My second brother was in the Navy, he served 20+ years and just recently retired. Several uncles served in the Army, some for 20+ years during both World War II and the Vietnam war.

With such a rich legacy of servicemen in the family, I feel proud that they all were willing to make the sacrifice to serve our country. Thank God for Veterans!


Happy Veterans Day To all Veterans!

We appreciate your selflessness and love for our country. 

We are grateful that you willingly offered your life to defend our freedom.


Thank you!

Going to Google USAFFE, I have not heard of that one before. Thank you for everything.
