I have a strong appreciation for those in the military and hope you do as well. I was born in Ft. Rucker, AL while my dad was in flight school. He is currently a brigadier general in the Army National Guard and I'm very proud of him. He has deployed to Bosnia and Iraq. While he no longer flies Black Hawk helicopters, I believe that was his favorite thing about the guard.
I'm also proud of my brother who is in the Army National Guard. He is currently at Ft. Benning, GA.
Of course, I can't forget my husband who was an infantry Marine and served two tough tours in Iraq.
While I have not served our country, I've been close enough to know it's not easy for those wearing the uniform or for their families. They all make tremendous sacrifices. Please thank a veteran today if you get the chance.
