~ A Heartfelt "Thank You" ~

TO THE MEN AND WOMEN who served our country before us and to the men and women who are serving our country now - Your courage and sacrifice made on your country's behalf is not in vain nor forgotten. Your valor and patriotism speak loudly in your home country. WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!~

I joined the military when I was 18 years old because I felt serving my country was the right thing to do. It taught me so many things. Self respect, Independence, team work, the power of knowledge and leadership. It also taught me that even though our current President may not be my leader of choice, he was our Commander in Chief and I gave him 100% of my support. I still live by that code today.

I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN......

I am PROUD to have served my country on foreign soil......

I am PROUD that we have the backbone to stand up and fight and defend ourselves as a nation...........

I am proud that we live in a free society where we can VOTE for our PRESIDENT.......where we ALL have a voice......

I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN.......

I am PROUD to be A UNITED STATES VETERAN......

Thank you for being you, for serving your country, for being honest, for flying our flag, and for believing in this great country!

THANK YOU to all of you for your thanks and appreciation ~

I can only pray that every veteran had someone who cared enough to say "thank you" to them today. There is no place in the world so sad and heartbreaking as a VA Hospital. "The Forgotten Unit". So many soldiers have no one - beaten and broken without anyone to help restore their faith in their God, themselves or their fellow man. They have only their demons as companions.

God bless them all.
