I know this weekend means BBQ’s, picnics and water fun for a lot of people, but for some of us, it means to really thank the men and women of past and present of their service in the military.
I grew up as a military brat and now I am a sister of a service man and a wife of a veteran and I am so thankful that I have these people in my life who want to continue to do what they can for our American Freedom.
Since being married to my hubby, I have watched him for 10 years now, walk up to anyone he sees that is a veteran or currently serving our military, shakes their hand and says “thank you”. I have heard stories from hubby’s dad of how he was treated after coming home from serving and how mean people were to him. We need to support and love those that give a piece to America. Walk up to them and just say “thank you”- I promise it will mean a lot to them!
Take a moment and just reflect on this memorial weekend.
