My Dad Jim Craig served in the Navy during WWII. Three of my mother’s brothers also served in that war.
I have several cousins that were in the service, one wounded in Viet Nam. My husband had two uncles in WWII also, both Purple Heart recipients. He also had several cousins who have served our nation, one badly wounded in Viet Nam.
My husband and I both have family that are currently serving in our military.
So as you can see, loving our military and its veterans is a personal thing to me.
My husband and I went to breakfast at Perkins this morning after church. A banner honoring all branches of our military stretched across their counter. There was a group of veterans sitting across from us. Perkins paid for all their meals. I thought that was very cool.
Our country enjoys freedom most countries can only dream of. But our freedom is not free. If you see a person in our country’s uniform today, thank them for their service.
Today I am thankful for our veterans.
