Veterans



A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, signed a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country nowadays who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown

I've been active duty Air Force for almost 18 years now. It's been the greatest experience of my life.

The Tree of Freedom must sometimes be watered by the blood of loyal patriots.

It's a great quote for sure, Eyes, and on my husband's behalf I thank you for posting it.

Have a great Labor Day weekend and blessings. :)

I tried twice for the military, second time I was disqualified for life.
I would still write that check today.
Great quote.

Hi everyone, I've been kind of busy recently. Sorry for being such a negligent blogger/responder. I know half the fun of blogging is 'talking', but this too shall pass. Hopefully I'll have more time in a few months.

You will NOT be forgotten, though we may not visit as often!
Take care, and may all that work pay off, just not in eye strain!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
