Land of the free

As the saying goes "all gave some, some gave all,"
...its the time of year when we reflect on the meaning of Memorial day, not to be confused with Veterans Day, or just another 3 day weekend. We must remember that our freedom was not free. 

Whether you or someone else served in the armed forces, I salute you and thank you for my freedom

Last week, 4 days after 1SG and I got married, we attended a funeral for a fellow soldier... buried with full military honors, and not a dry eye (or vacant seat) in the house. He is laid to rest by 8 of his closest friends and beside his stepson, which he brought home from Iraq about 10 years ago. 

Ya all know the song "Letters from home"? There's a part that says "There aint nothing funny when a Soldier cries" Well there is nothing sadder than a room full of Soldiers sobbing! Rest In Peace Sgt Lewis

I love your flag and stars. Your card has such a lovely rustic feel. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of a fellow soldier. Prayers and blessings. Thanks for playing along this week at CAS-ual Fridays!
