To All Who Have Served

I want to say thank you.

Both my father and my husband’s stepfather fought in World War 2. Oddly enough they both served in the Navy. My father was on a minesweeper, one of the most boring and the most dangerous assignments.

The funny thing is if my father had not served he would not have qualified for the GI Bill and he would have never gone to College. As a result he would not have met my mother and I would never have been born.

So I really can say I owe my existence to a Veteran. I would like to thank all of you for what you do to keep us safe and to protect all that we value: life and liberty.
