    ... to all those men, women, children, and parents who serve our country. I added the children in there, because they sacrifice too. They give up their dad's and mom's and are even moved all over the world, so we can enjoy the freedoms of our great nation. I added the parents, because so many have given up their children's lives for the same reason. I am truly honored to be a citizen of this great country that you serve.

    I want to personally thank each and every service member and their families for your sacrifice and for serving this great nation! God bless you and your families. You are in our prayers daily. May the Lord bless and keep you and your families safe. [​IMG] Happy Memorial Day, America!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    Thank you all on behalf of my husband who served in the military for over 25 years, most of that time with me alongside him. And thanks to all the other families who have suffered and served alongside their loved ones, to the ones who have endured hardship to keep our freedom, and who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
     
  10. THANK YOU ALL MILITARY FAMILIES, WIVES, PAENTS CHILDREN AND EXTENDED FAMILY (bro,sis, aunts, uncles, cousins,)so many times they are forgotten but in a close family they worry too. Since my son just got home from a TOD their church is sending them on a retreat this week. EVERY ONE ELSE HAVE A GREAT WEEK END TOO.[​IMG] marrie
