Thank You Vets

Today, and everyday, I am thankful for all of those who have protected us, who are currently protecting us, and those who will in the future.

Being over seas, away from family and friends, in a foreign place praying for your life. I could never imagine what that is like. I had a first hand experience of being a friend to someone who was serving over seas during this war. It was heartbreaking not to know what was going on, not being able to really get details, and only praying each day when I didn't hear from him that he was OK. Praise the Lord he came home safe and sound, but we all know not all of them do.

I highly suggest watching a movie called Restrepo, it is not easy to watch but it is a first hand view of what they go through there, and it isn't even half of it. I will say it is graphic at times so be warned.

Thank you troops, I wish we were aware enough to thank you every day, that is what you are fighting for right? The ability to say and do what we would like.
