Thank You

In honor of the men and women serving our country for Veterans Day, I say thank you.

It is by their choice,
their dedication,
their loyalty,
and their bravery,
that we remain free.

I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to my grandfather and J's grandfather. They both made this nation a place so many want to live. Our grandfathers fought to protect that, and others still do to this day.

My grandfather fought in WWII. J's grandfather fought in Korea and Vietnam. They are living legends and I am blessed by them both.

that most deserve our gratitude."
