We were (and still are at heart) a military family. Our kids were "Army Brats". One day driving past a wooded area on post, there was a unit involved in a field problem exercise. When our oldest daughter ( then 4) saw all of the guys in fatigues, she said "look at all of the daddies, mama!". Her daddy and all of her friend's daddies wore uniforms. Living and being on post seemed like the safest neighborhood in the world. Our hearts and prayers are with the families and friends of all of those lost in the senseless Ft. Hood tragedy.
On this Veteran's Day, we pay tribute to all who have served this country....we remember.
This is a post I published back in July.
Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
