Freedom is never free. - Author Unknown

This past year I've noticed myself getting teary-eyed when I saw an American flag flapping in the breeze. I get just as emotional when I notice a tattered, weather-beaten flag hanging limp in the pouring rain.

Growing up/older has given me such an appreciation for those men and women who have served in the military for our country. And, for their families and friends that miss them back home.

Freedom has come at such a tremendously high price.

This Veterans Day, I especially give thanks to God for those that serve (and have served) in our U.S. Military. I pray for your safety, your families and friends missing you, and the jobs that you do. I pray for peace and freedom and I humbly say, "Thank YOU... for being so willing to give all."

May God bless you and your families and keep you safe.
