This is not much compared to the great sacrifices made by the service men and women serving our country, however, in helping to honor our Veterans and Active Duty, I was able to participate in “Operation Cookie Drop” at a local Air Force Base. Spouses pulled together to make HUNDREDS of cookies for these men and women. We bagged cookies of three, added Hersey Kisses, and passed them out as Airmen were leaving work. What an honor to give back just a very all gesture of Veterans Day Gratitude.
As I participated in “Operation Cookie Drop” I was reminded that Veterans Day is a day dedicated for us to pause and salute all who have served. It is a day to honor the tremendous sacrifices made by members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families to preserve our freedom.
I am proud to be an American and I am grateful to my family who has served and are currently serving our Country. Some of my family turned to alcohol and never recovered from their experiences defending our freedom…..
Thank you to my Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Father, and Husband.
To all Veterans, there are no words for me to express how thankful I am to each and every one of you who have defended our country, past and present. I thank you for your personal sacrifices and I am honored to be able to support your families.
