You might not know that I am a died in the wool, red, white and blue patriot!
My father and my brother were both Veterans. I grew up a Navy brat in the old days when people honored our service men and women.
Not very many people consider the families of soldiers who give up time with their spouses and parents while the soldier is gone. There were many many months when my dad was on a cruise when he couldn't be there for us. There were Christmas's and birthdays and functions that he couldn't attend. My Mom was a single mom until the ship pulled in and dad came home.
So I leave you with this...if you are blessed enough to live in this great country and you are related to or know someone who has served, thank for their service this weekend. I wish I had treated my dad and my brother more like heroes when they were on this earth and
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Until next time,
