This Memorial Day...

Feels different than others in the past. I've always thought of those who served our country past and present.

But this year is different...

I am away from my hubby who is currently in the Army National Guard as an MP. Although he is not overseas he is however away recieving training as an MP for the next 26 days. (31 days ordered)
He is also a former Marine as well

I know it isn't Iraq or Baghdad as it very well could be ...but I am apart from my husband and my daughter from her dad. It is the first time my family has been seperated for for longer than 5 days in over 7 years.

So in a way this Memorial Day has a little more meaning... The pride of friends and family that have served this country past and present.

A beloved grandfather who served in the Korean Conflict who has just recently passed

My husband's uncle who was in Vietnam and lived to tell of a horrific ambush...he is a quiet man who believes he only did what he was asked to do serve his country.

A cousin who has served 2 tours in Iraq in the last 2 years.

And many friends...

So on this Memorial Day When I see the various commericals I am filled with a sense of pride I have yet felt.

I am proud of my husband and my grandfather and uncle and I am glad to say they are a part of my life...

And to those of you here on AdultFriendFinder serving in our Miltary past and present Thank You...

Because of them We are Free...

God Bless
