HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all the women and men who served or are serving in our military.
My father served in the Navy during WWII..he was welcomed home at the end of the war with a hero's welcome...thank you Daddy,I know you hear me in Heaven.
My husband served in Nam...I'm glad you made it out!!! He came home,not to a Hero's welcome,but to people who gave him a hard time...no help for the Nam vets like there was for other wars...maybe because it was called a "conflict" ? There is help now,but not when he came home. Well, THANK You Stephen..I am proud of you..and I love you.
My father and husband never got the day off while they were employed...government workers get it off,some never having served!!! Don't you think all who served should get the day off? I DO !!
However you celebrate the day..remember those who never came home..along with those who were lucky enough to!!!
