My hubs and I are both blessed to come from military families. I always feel gratitude to my Grampy who lost his leg in WWII and my own father who served in the Army for 22 years. Both suffer from PTSD and I am grateful for theirs and their families' service and sacrifice, as well as those who serve around the world. Special shout out to my brother-in-law who just started a 10-month deployment.
Today, though, I'm especially grateful to those who have laid down their lives for the cause of freedom. Taking some time out to show them respect.
