Counting My Blessings Day 11

Today I am blessed to be the grand daughter of a WWII Veteran.

My grandaddy served in the Army in the Pacific Theater.
He was a medic and saw things I can not even imagine.

So today I am thankful for all Veterans,
My dad was drafted for Vietnam and served in the Army National Guard.
My Father In Law was career Army and served in the Korean War.
 My husband served in the Navy and was on his ship in the Gulf during the Beirut conflict.
I am thankful they all fought for us and for the freedom of those who are oppressed in other countries.
I am blessed by these men in my life.
Thank You to all who serve and who have served our country.
You are a blessing to me.

  2. I echo your sentiment, Jennifer. I have a line of veterans in my family, too...My father (WWII), my uncles (one served over in Germany and was witness to one of the worst battles in WWII and the other served in Korea as a pilot), and more.

    I, too am grateful for their dedication, and for the praying mothers who helped to bring them home safely.

    Thank you for visiting,and have a very pink Saturday,
