They Make Freedom Possible

Today I honor our veterans.  I want to thank them for all that they have sacrificed for our freedoms.  Both small and great, they've all given up a lot to make sure we are safe.  Some even made the ultimate sacrifice for you and for me.  

How can I best honor our veterans?  By doing my best to live a Christian life, and being a responsible citizen, and by raising a family to love and care for their country, and by upholding American traditions.

Today I honor my dad (who is now deceased) for his service in the Army during the Korean conflict, and my son in law who served in the Army and was in Iraq for the beginning of the war over there.

Please feel free to leave a comment telling of veterans you would honor today in your heart and in your thoughts.

May God Bless America

My dad entered the service at age 17 they thought he was 18 but they were not careful to be sure back then. He was around guys who were much older than he was and when they were not working they were drinking. Dad suffered terribly from what he saw and had to do. He came back home never to be the same man he would have been. He suffered and so did his family. Many do not realized the cost those who serve pay to keep us free. Thank you, Dad.

Thanks to my dad who was sent to Germany when all he really wanted to do was stay home and be a Missouri Farmer. He did get to come home and be that farmer. He was always very proud of his time spent in the Army.
