Today, my heart goes out to the Marine family that lost a son in Afghanistan. Our youngest did 2 tours in Iraq and our oldest, a career Navy officer in EOD is forever going to Iraq and Afghanistan. Our DIL, a Navy Doc, just returned from a year in Afghanistan. The middle son is a cop....we live in constant gut wrenching fear when the phone rings at night or a strange sedan pulls up in the driveway.
As we celebrate the 4th of July and our own Freedom at home, lets not forget the legions of loved ones that purchased our freedoms with their own lives, so that we could live in freedom from fear and tyranny.
I remember....I pray for their safety everyday....God bless the brave men and women of our military and keep them safe till they return.
