Happy Veterans Day!

I couldn't let today go by without acknowledging it here on the blog, so while I still have a few minutes [Guess who's napping?!], here goes nothing!

DH's unit in Afghanistan, 2009-2010

Thank you.  Thank you to all of those family members, friends, and fellow PGR members who wore the uniform proudly and inspired me to take my own oath of enlistment.  Thank you to my husband, who is not only a three branch veteran, but who has been a huge source of support and encouragement of my own journey from day one.  

Honoring a fallen soldier with the PGR.

So many great men and women have gone before me, standing up and pledging to serve our country.  I am humbled to be their sister in arms.

Papa, my dad's father.
Grandpa W., my mom's dad.
Happy Veterans Day to you and your loved ones, today and every day!
