TO HONOR THOSE WHO SERVE


Today we remember those who have served and sacrificed to protect the freedoms we enjoy. Cherish the day, celebrate, and given the opportunity, thank a service man or woman. I know I will.

Grandma J is a true patriot. We have an airman in our family and we appreciate his service as well as all who serve.

Wonderful Memorial Day sentiments, Grandma J., thank you for sharing them. Our family is very appreciative of all of our servicemen and women of current times and past. Please extend our gratitude to your son in law (is he John?).

Thank you for reminding me, Karen B., and thank you for your kind words.

I would like to apologize for not clarifying who Soldier John is. He is my son-in-law, a Master Sergeant in the United States Army.

Hey, I commented before, and it put me down as Doug, probably because Im on his computer, but, that's weird.

Anyways, it was just me, Doug doesnt blog (read or write).

So well said. I think I've cried 30-40 times this weekend, just thinking about stuff. "Stuff" being my inarticulate way of expressing admiration and gratitude, to your John and all who serve.

Thanks, Grandma J.
