Happy Memorial Day! I just want to give a heartfelt thanks to those family, friends, and others who serve our country in so many ways.
This Memorial Day is a week before my son, Hunter, deploys to Iraq with the KYARNG. We love him dearly and will miss him. We wish a safe and quick deployment for his brigade.
I also want to thank my oldest son, Justin, for serving over 6 years in the KY Army National Guard, with one (very long for mama) deployment to Iraq.
Justin and his father, John, served together in Iraq. Lt. Col. John just retired after a 26 years in the Army.
Thanks go out to my awesome hubby, David, a former Marine (what a baby face here!)
My ret Air Force Uncle Bill, my Marine cousins Craig and Josh, my late grandfathers Dale, Eugene and Lyle, and a multitude of friends who have served or are still serving: Keith, Drew, Matt, Hinkle, Dave, Larry, Jarrod, Alfredo, Chuck, and many more.
We love you and thank you for our freedom!
