Memorial Day!

I come from a family of military men.  My father had an Air Force career.  My middle brother had an Army career.  My oldest brother had an Army career and graduated from West Point.  My husband had an Air Force career.

My father served as a transport pilot in WWII, flying C-130's.

Both of my brothers served in Vietnam.  One was a tank commander and one as a Hughy helicopter pilot.  One served one term and one served two terms in Vietnam.

My husband also was a pilot during Vietnam.  He flew missions out of the Phillipines.  His plane was the A-10 Warthog fighter.

So, I would first like the thank all of the men in my family for their service to our country.  I could throw in a cousin or two as well.:)

Today, I would like to thank all the brave men and women who are now fighting for our country.  And, how do you even begin to thank the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.  Their deaths cannot be in vain.

I feel like we are losing our country, our traditions, our way of it is all slipping away.  Please, God, help us to keep this country as its founders envisioned.  Americans are strong and generous and full of pioneering spirit.  We are a nation of immigrants.... who wanted nothing more than to assimilate into our culture. 

Now, most people entering the country want to destroy our culture and replace it with their own.  Thank you, God, for the men and women who were willing to die to keep this country free and strong and the same.  Dear God, help us to survive as a country and preserve our way of life.


  1. God Bless them all and God Bless America!

  2. Well said, Carole! God Bless all of our service members, both past and present. Our family found themselves in the Navy and Marines.

  3. God Bless the men and women past and present who serve for us!
