Memorial Day is such an important day in our country and in our culture. Today is the day that we remember those who served, those who are serving, and those who may serve in the future.
I grew up in a military community, joined the Air Force, married an Airman, left the Air Force, and live on an Air Force Base. My friends are military, my kids friends are military brats, my kids are military brats (!) and my mom was a military brat.
Both my grandfathers on both sides of my family served. My cousin served. My friends from high school serve.
The military community is small, we haven't even been in for that long and I already have experienced that first hand. We help each other, even when we don't know each other.
So on Memorial Day, when the whole country takes a second to remember and to think about the community I live in and live with. It feels really good.
Today all our thoughts and prayers go to not only the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but to those who came home, sometimes broken, physically and emotionally.
Thank you for all that you have done.
