I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our active duty military and Veterans out there. I have a special Thank You to say as well, to my husband who is currently serving his country in the United States Air Force and I am SO DAMN PROUD OF HIM! Love You Baby!
I come from a big military family serving all the different branches of the armed forces. My own father has been in the Army since before I was born. He retired out as a Captain only to go back a few years later and join the Army Reserves. The running joke in our family is that his ex wives never let him blow stuff up. 🙂 He has missed countless birthdays and holidays while being deployed around the world. But he always kept my brothers and me in his thoughts and in his heart. My dad is 58 now and is STILL in. His last deployment to Afghanistan didn’t end so well. A rocket hit his base which caused him to hit a brick wall, unprotected. He is now on undeployable status, but has yet to fully retire. He has completely dedicated himself to our country and I couldn’t be more proud of him. Thank you, Dad, for all you do!
My own husband was among the elite. He was an Army Ranger. He was in and out of the Army by the time we met. One too many jumps out of planes finished off his knee and ended is military career. He carries with him the pride of his accomplishments and the burden of the brothers that he’s lost. One look in our home office and you can tell he is proud of the time he gave. I’m proud of you too, honey. Thank you for your service to our country.
