I was raised in a military home. I spent my entire childhood with a father who was an officer in the Navy. We did not move as often as most military families and my father did not go on long deployments as he spent much of his time in school or in port so we were lucky. The military is in my blood. My husband is a Vietnam War era vet and we have many friends who have served…in fact, most of our friends either made the military a career or served a 4 year term. I am so very proud of all of them and thankful to those who are serving now, preserving our freedoms and the American way of life we are all so fortunate to enjoy; never more evident than in the election that took place this past week. So to everyone I know and don’t know, who served and are serving—Thank you for your service!
