Today our street will be lined with flags. A wonderful service provided by our local Boy Scout Troop.
Some of you may not know I was Active Duty Air Force, as was my husband. Our military ties run deep with parents, grandparents, and siblings who have all served. Our brother-in-law is currently on active duty.
Fortunately, we have not lost any of our family in the line of military service. But we know many have, and today is about honoring them. It is with deep respect and gratitude that today and everyday I remember and honor those military members who made the ultimate sacrifice. It is because of them that we enjoy our freedom.
For recent generations choosing to serve is voluntary, and I know it is a deeply personal decision. I have a deep respect for those who choose to serve. In my opinion serving your country is one of the greatest ways to honor our fallen heroes. It is one way to uphold the traditions and continue their work. My military education and service barely makes a dent in my understanding of what some have endured and given to protect our freedom. I will never really know the sacrifice they made, but know enough to be ever thankful to them.
Thank you to all those who have, are, or will serve. I keep you all in my prayers and hope we don’t add any more names to the list of those we remember on this day.
