Today I am thinking about all the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, and especially about those who have lost their lives during their tour of service.
I am one of the lucky ones. My immediate family has not suffered the loss of loved one to a war. Other families have not been so blessed. And even if their soldier came home, many families have lost the life-they-once-had with their soldier because of the toll of his/her service.
My husband and I took a trip thru Normandy a few years back, and seeing the loss of so many young lives firsthand was very moving, and at times overwhelming. Thank you, to all the men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country. Thank you to their families who sacrificed as well.
