Land of the free

home of the brave.

Boy, do those words ever ring true.

This post is dedicated to my soldier son and all the other

brave men and women that serve this country.

You have stepped up and stepped out at a very frightening time.

This is a decision that each of you MADE.

It wasn't mandatory.

You are proud to represent the Red, White, and Blue.

You have put our country's needs before your own.

I applaud each of you and wish I could

give you a big old hug.

May God Bless you and keep you safe.

All of you are loved and respected.

Thank you for your service to us.

Because of your sacrifices, we will continue to be able to celebrate
our country's birthday.

Jeff, if you are reading this, I LOVE YOU and
I am so proud of you my Yankee Samurai.

P.S. I know you have seen these photo's but they make me happy-hehe.

I HAVE seen those photos but LOVE them as much today as I did when you posted them before. Some pictures are worthy of a double-post!

Thank you Jeff for your service, from me! Hugs and Happy Fourth!

Amen to that Barb. My son joins the Screaming Eagles on August 10th. He is thinking about going into Air Assault.

God Bless our Troops.

I'm thankful for selfless men like your son, who sacrifice for our country and its freedom. You deserve to be very proud!

Even in Canada we appreciate all the men and women from your country and ours.
A huge sacrifice is made for all of our benefit.
No wonder you are so proud.
