Happy Veterans Day 2011

What a special day! We're awaiting the arrival of my favorite Sailor returning from his second tour in Iraq at any time!!! We are all very excited and thankful for his safe return! But we're also remembering all who have served in the past, and all of those still serving today so that we can enjoy our freedom. God Bless all of YOU!

Yes do thank him for us. My son went to Iraq in 2005 while I was having Chemo. It was hard for both of us. He and his entire unit came back physically fine. But he has been mentally and emotionally damaged by the experience. He is soooo angry all the time. It is sad. :( I don't know what to do. I just pray hard.

We pray for the safe return of our servicemen and women. We pray for the wounded. And we pray for those who are mourning the death of their loved ones. ( I have tears now)..Thank you to the families whose son, fathers, brothers care for this country enough to die for it and us. Love to you all.

Thank you ladies. He's actually my nephew, but very special, nonetheless. All of our servicemen are very, very special. I'm so grateful to all of them who have served and those still serving.
