Today is the day when old men and young men(and women) walk together in memory of time served for our country, whether it be in peace time or when at war. They are honored for giving themselves so we can be free. They are humble men, all of them would say they would do it again, and are blessed with thanks from all of us, but their common response would be,"just doing my job." As they pass by today, know they are lifting up more than just a flag, it is you and I they carry, so we can be free to be.... and here we can list a multiple things we can be free of, so I take a moment and list them and give my thanks for those who served. May God bless you and keep you.
This is my son. He is now serving in the Army. He saw two tours in Iraq. Saw way to much evil, but did his job. He is now wounded in body, mind and spirit, yet he says he would do it all again. Such humble sacrifice, such honor among men. I pray his little one,( who is in protesting in his arms) will grow up in peace.
He has earned a purple heart, and will soon be released from the army. I pray for him, that all his dreams will be fulfilled, in-spite of his injury. It is so hard for me to see him broken, I hope that he will heal.
