Tuesday is a day to remember the Veterans who gave of their time and endangered their lives to keep us safe and free.
I am grateful to the members of my family both the ones pictured and the ones not mentioned who served in the military, and gave of their time, and for the families that stayed home to wait for them, worry about them, and pray for them.
At 11AM on 11/11 lets all stop for 2 minutes of silence, in memory of the Men and Women who fought to defend our Freedoms.
