~ Thank our Veterans! ~



Today is not just 11-11-11...it's a special day set aside to honor all veterans that have protected us since WWI and some gave their all to do so. It would be great to find a way to really honor them personally. If you are related to one or have a veteran among your friends or social circle ~ give them a call, write a personal note or email them, stop by a local VFW and just say "Thank you!"  You just cannot imagine how much these words mean to them.

I feel very strongly about supporting our military personnel on active duty also. They are in horrible situations and in harm's way every hour to protect us. One way to honor our military is, once again, just to say "Thank you!"  You can easily do that by offering a prayer for them.

Well said, Pat! My dad was a WWII vet as well as several of my uncles. We still need to honor those men and women who have passed on and thank those still serving today. xo

Thank you Pat! My second oldest son is a green beret and will be deploying to Afghanistan the first of the year. The hard work, dedication, and risk is unbelievable. God bless our veterans and active duty.
Hugs,

Thank you for this wonderful post Pat... every man (and a few women, can't forget them) in my life, from grandfather,father, husband, along with my two sons, were/are career military and my heart go's out to all that serve this great country! I was a military brat and we moved every 2-3 years around the world from base to base when they changed duty stations.. it's an amazing life and those who serve are AMAZING people!
