Dont Forget To Remember

!!!!!!!MY BABY IS HOME!!!!!!!!!!

Can I tell you how much I love this kid??

Everyone please have a great, safe weekend. And while your bbq'ing, shopping and laying on the beach, please dont forget the reason for this extended weekend.

Go to a Memorial Day service if you can find one in your town. Check your local newspaper today, they should have a listing of services. And when you get there, thank every single vet you see there. Twice.

And tell your children, grand children, any kids you see this weekend what its all about. Why we have this Memorial Day. The children must learn and know why we do this. I dont think enough people really talk to thier kids and tell them the meaning behind some of our holidays.

Tell them we honor these men and women who gave all so we could live free.

I'll be busy for the next couple of days so might not be around that much. I Got a lot to do with My kid. My sailor. My baby. My heart.

Be safe if your traveling and stay well. And remember why we love our country so much.
Muahs my friends. =)

Great post, Sugar!

Enjoy your time with your baby. Please give her a big hug from me, and send along my thanks to her as well. I know the kind of heart it takes to freely enlist in the military during the kind of times we are living in now.

Her actions speak volumes about the kind of woman she is.

My baby has been a member of a Funeral Team for 4 years. Several times each week he pays his respect, and says goodbye to a veteran who served before him. He will be doing that again this weekend.

If there is one thing I could share and let everyone know, it's that EVERY veteran is entitled to this. There is no cost to the family at all, you only need to request the team come out. So many people assume you had to have seen combat to get this type of service. You only need to have served and been honorably discharged. It truly is a moving and beautiful show of respect and gratitude for time given in service to our country.

God bless the American Soldier, who is responsible for whatever civilization there is left in the world.

God bless America, the last and best hope of the entire planet.
