30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 11

I am VERY THANKFUL for American's Veterans!!

Today is Veteran Day and I am forever THANKFUL for all who have served our great country Past, Present and Future. Those who choose to serve their country in the different branches of the Military are true Heroes. Veterans put their lives on the line daily to protect our American FREEDOMS and I am very THANKFUL for those who have made the choice.

My husband is an Army Veteran, having served Active Duty from '89-93 and then Reserves from '93-'99. He is very proud of his service time, as he very well should be.

I am also very THANKFUL to families of military personnel. The families are very important also, as they are "sacrificing" their loved ones to serve our country. The families have a lot to deal with and make sure the family continues on while their loved one is serving the country. My heart especially goes out to the Families who have "Memories" of their Veterans as their loved one made the "Ultimate Sacrifice" of being a Veteran!

We have taught our boys to ALWAYS say "THANK YOU" to anyone they see in Military uniform and they enjoy doing so! We live close to a couple of Reserve units so we see lots of Military personnel in stores and restaurants in and around us!

I am THANKFUL for our Veterans, not just today, but EVERY DAY!!
