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.
