I am the daughter, the wife and a mother of military members and I am a proud American. My husband and I have a room designated in our home that has photos of all the family members that have served. For some of them we either have the airplane or the ships that they were attached and assigned to. Both my husband and I are very proud of the sacrifices people in the armed services have made. As a spouse I don't think a lot of people realize the sacrifices kids, wives and the families make for those military people. I have two sons and my youngest son is currently serving - he left October 25, 2017 for Afghanistan and we're very proud of him. For me, there is a lot of pride mixed in with worry but for him it was an excellent career choice. To all who have served our country, I want to extend a heartfelt 'Thank You' because we would be so vulnerable if we didn't have a strong military presence. It's a blank check that they've handed us and it's amazing. Thank you to all the members who have serviced our country and Happy Veteran's Day.
