We remember...those who are serving, those who didn't come home...
..and those who have served in other wars..
I married a young Marine, Patrick, when I was just 17 years old. It is not an easy life. And to be honored for his service in the Military would have made him so happy. Unfortunately he served during Korea and then Vietnam, and did not come home to parades and flying flags.
I am so glad things have changed for the young men today and that they come home to something better than Pat did.
I had hoped and so did he, that there would be no more wars like Korea and then Vietnam, but it wasn't to be.
In some ways I am glad he didn't live to see that war is happening once again.
God bless all our men and their families who are caught up in it.
Love and hugs,
