“Freedom is Never Free”

This quote is so very true and no one understands this reality more than our men and women serving in the Armed Forces.


Today, as we all know, is Veterans Day. Not a day of remembering fallen soldiers as with Memorial Day, but a day of honoring all of our soldiers who toil every day, protecting this country, so that all of us can enjoy freedom and safety within our borders. As some of you may know, I’m the daughter of a career military father who retired from the Army many years ago. Every time I see a picture of a child hugging their uniformed parent before saying what could be a final goodbye, I always think of my father who, thankfully, is alive and well. In honor of my father and all men and women who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces, I write this post to thank each of you for your service to this country, and I pray God’s protection and peace upon you and your families. God bless you always.

  1. AMEN! I’m truly thankful for their service. It takes a special person to make that kind of sacrifice.

  2. Yes, it does–especially when a person has a family depending on them.

  3. My Granddaddy was in the US Marine Corps during WWII and was wounded on Okinawa. Until the day he died, the thing he was proudest of in this world (besides his 4 children and 6 grandchildren) was that he had been one of Uncle Sam’s Finest, in The Glorious Corps. Thank you, Granddaddy and all American servicemen and servicewomen. Semper Fi!

  4. Sarah, what a blessing that your grandfather made it back home to his family. His service to this country will be remembered in all of you, his family, and appreciated by me and millions of others.

  5. Well said, Sharon! We owe much to our Veterans!

  6. Thank you, Mary. 🙂

  7. So true. Thanks for sharing.
