Happy Veteran's Day to Military Veterans and Happy 239th Birthday U.S.M.C.







As the wife of an American Veteran, I have a heart for all veterans. I wish to all military veterans who served in the past and to those who are now serving in the armed forces in America,  a very Happy Veteran's Day tomorrow! Thank you for serving our beloved country and for giving so much to protect the people who live here and for protecting the rights that we sometimes take for granted.
Happy Veteran's Day to All American Veterans
Today, I am sharing a photo of my daughter, Stephanie, who is wearing a sweatshirt that belonged to her daddy many years ago, long before she was born  when he was a "few" pounds lighter. I was a new bride.  My husband, her father, and I were living in Charleston, S.C. He was stationed at the Naval Weapons Station at Goose Creek, Charleston, South Carolina at the time.
Stephanie wore this shirt yesterday to church to honor her father, a Marine veteran, for Veteran's Day. Her father and I were both very surprised and touched by this sweet and meaningful gesture. Stephanie is so proud of her father and the time he spent in service to our country. We are proud of her and we feel so blessed that God chose us to be the parents of  two sweet and thoughtful daughters! Her husband, Jason, snapped a picture of her after the church service was over.

As it happens, this garment also serves the purpose of honoring all active and inactive United States Marine Corps veterans on the 239th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps! I adore this picture of her in the Marine Barracks sweatshirt.

I hope my fellow Americans will take the time to honor all of our veterans. Freedom is not free. No matter what your thoughts on the subject of war and those who serve in the military, it is an undeniable fact that we would not enjoy the liberty to express our views had it not been for those who serve our country. I, for one, am eternally grateful for that freedom.

Happy Birthday U.S. Marine Corps and Happy Veteran's Day to all veterans!
