Memorial Day, Grateful for Their Sacrifice

I posted this two years ago here and am reposting it now in honor of Memorial Day.

I wanted to say "Thank You" to all veterans today, including my husband, my ex-husband, my brother-in-law, my late father, and my bio-dad. It is thanks to them and to their sacrifices that I am free, a freedom I usually take for granted. I cannot comprehend the amount of caring and concern that a military person has for others such that she or he would be willing to sacrifice their life for them.  I admire them greatly and thank them today especially.

I am also grateful for the sacrifices made by families of military personnel. They are many. Thank you.
