In Honour of Our Fallen Heros

Today is Memorial Day in the US of A. It is a day to remember our service members. They died in the service of their country helping to protect my right to live free.

My GrandDa was a career Army man, as well as a member of the National Guard. It was not an easy life for his family, but he believe in what he was doing. I have infinite respect and admiration for those that make military life a career as they know the risk of dying in service. I appreciate their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their family.

If you care to read two other lovely tributes to this day and the men and women it honours, please do check out Tristan's blog at Enchanted Revelry and Anne's Blog at El Milagro Studio

Again, thank you for your service, Bless you All.

Lovely poppy picture Leslie.
No, life in the military is not easy. People outside of it have no idea what the daily stresses are like in peacetime, let alone in times of war.
Thanks for remembering all who serve.
