Honoring Our Veterans

Giving thanks to all our veterans who are serving and served protecting our wonderful nation, especially my Daddie. He served in the army at the Joint Security Area in Korea as a Military Police Officer. Back in the old days our country had what was called the draft. Our country was involved with an unpopluar, though I think most would agree that all wars are unpopular but this one was especially bad, war and needed men to serve in the military. Dad was all signed up to go to college but he was drafted and had to go away from my mommie soon after they were married, they had to be seperated for a long time.

One night when my daddie had to go on patrol an angel was sitting on his shoulder and his life was spared when a terrible thing happened, four others were not so lucky that day. Four of our servicemen and friends of my daddie paid the ultimate price. To this day our family remembers that day and our heart is still heavy with sadness for those that were taken. Each and every day we are thankful that my daddie returned safely home.

There are no words that can truly say how much these brave men and woman are. To all our veterans that have served, are serving, and those now up in heaven I send you all a big THANK YOU!

Thank your Daddy for his service. We are so sorry for the comrades he lost and their families. Wouldn't it be wonderful if one day the world was peaceful and no one lost love ones in war. Until that purrfect day we are so thankful for the men and women who serve us.

My Dad was in that same a MASH unit. He would never talk about his days in the service. I don't think I could even imagine the things he saw. We give a big thank you and hug to all Vets past and present.
