“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same…” – Ronald Reagan

To my husband, an Iraq war vet who has served his country for more than 20 years now, thank you.

To my dad, a former Navy SeaWolf who bravely piloted missions in Vietnam to save men’s lives and fight for the freedom of others, thank you.

To all of America’s war veterans and the military men and women who choose daily to fight for and protect the freedom we’ve been given, thank you.

To my children…and to the next generation…may you have the honor of knowing these heroes and may you understand the value of the sacrifices made on your behalf and always cherish them deeply.

May God bless America.
