We Remember...

Happy November and all...

Sorry - we've been under the weather around here and trying to finish some major projects. HOWEVER today would be lost if we did not take a moment to recognize those who fight so bravely to protect all that we hold dear! There are many in my life who to whom I admire for this along with the hundreds of thousands to whom I will never be able to shake their hands:

Grandpa Browning- A WWII veteran who fought in the Pacific
Grandpa Henson - A Highly Decorated WWII Veteran who taught me my entire life that a life built on character and respect is a life worth living
Bob Browning (My Dad) - A Navy veteran who served even when he didn't have to
Shirley Sweet - A WWII Army Captain - a nurse who fought in the front lines and a heroine to us all
Cousins Radebaugh - They still proudly serve the Army today. Joey and Jamie have both served 2 tours in Iraq.
Wesley - A dear friend (and the closest thing I have to a brother!). Every since we were young he has always wanted to serve and he is set to go back to Iraq for his 3rd tour.

We also remember the families that support them. From Aunt Martha, Uncle Joe, and even Toni - they show such a great amount of courage and bravery that is unimaginable to most of us. The closest thing I will say in regards to a political statement is this - support for those who serve is a bi-partisan effort!

I know this isn't legal, but in a way it is - we have a legal system because of men and women who say: "I serve, so that you may live free!"

It seems weird to say : "Happy Veteran's Day" - its like saying - "Happy Risk Your Lives for our Freedom Day!" Instead I say - THANK YOU! and May The Creator Bless You and Keep You!
