Thankful for those who Serve our Country

November 11, 2009

Me and NickI usually post the Tuesday night Bible study notes for you first thing on Wednesday morning; I promise I will post them later today.

First, I wanted to recognize Veteran’s Day.  It’s a day to show our gratitude for all the men and women who have served in the armed forces. I have always appreciated Veteran’s Day.  Now more than ever, since our son Nicholas was accepted into the Air Force Academy.  This is a picture of Nick and I during parent’s weekend at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.  As civilians we rarely understand the level of committment and sacrifices that these amazing men and women make.  Join the me in recognizing our service men and women today.  Find one person who has or is currently serving our country and say “Thank you”!

Operation Gratitude is wonderful organization that sends care packages and letters to service men and women all over the world.  As we approach the holiday season, many will be separated from their family and loved ones.  To find out more visit their web site at  www.opgratitude.com .
