Honoring Those Who Have Served or Currently Serve

My brother in law and a few close friends of mine currently serve our country.  It is because of them that I am able to sit here on my couch with my girls and write this post.  I am so proud of them for their service and their dedication to this country.  I am proud to call them not just friends but family.  

I remember watching “American Sniper” with one of those close friends, Bryan, and I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the film.  I asked him questions of the authenticity of the events in the movie and I just couldn’t believe what our men and women go through so that we can sleep at night.  I cried at the end of the movie and since then, I’ve watched it multiple times, crying each time.  I will forever be grateful for EVERYTHING they do.

Let us take a moment to thank those who currently serve and honor those who have served.  Let’s remember those who gave their life for us.  I am proud to be an American and proud of those who protect us daily.
