Veteran's Day Rememberance

I know.. A day late but I had some complications getting online yesterday, as in I didn't work, as in I was working on presents and as in we had a family emergency... So happy late Veteran's Day to all the Veteran, past and present, to all the active members of the military, and to all your families! As a vet I know that Veteran's Day is huge thanks! Giving a thank you to someone may not always be as easy to let out as everyone thinks. But how do you thank someone that has risked their life, their career, their future just so you can be free, so you don't have to fight?? It's hard and I never realized it until after I joined the military. I joined the Army in 1998 as a Junior in High School, even then I didn't realize the risk I was taking, I figured, college money, traveling, meeting new people--The End...

Wrong! I was in Germany when 9-11 happened and talk about a world turning upside down in a heartbeat! It was a day most of us will never soon forget. Being in the military at that time was the hardest part of being in the Military. I never imagined something like that happening. Before that day I never thought of my enlistment as a risk, I never thought that I would be affected by it like that. I was wrong and I realize that for whatever reason someone joins the military, they are 100% putting their lives into someone else's hands, they are risking everything for everyone else's freedom. After 9-11 everyone had a different point of view of the military and who served and I'm glad it was a huge eye-opener for everyone to see what the Soldiers do for them but I am sad that it took so many lives for everyone to wake up.

So a HUGE thank you to all that have served, that are serving and who will soon serve because we are eternally greatful for your contribution to OUR freedom and the futures of our children!


THANK YOU VETS!
