We should never, ever take for granted
the freedoms we have, and the Americans
who have given sacrificially to guard them.
My heartfelt thanks goes to every soldier
who has ever served
and to those who are still serving.
My daddy was in the Korean War,
and my uncle was present in WWII,
on February 23, 1945
when the flag was raised on Iwo Jima.
The account of raising the flag is quite incredible.
My uncle was was one of the fortunate who survived. Pretty amazing.
On this Veteran’s Day, and all through the years,
let’s remember those who are working valiantly
to ensure our freedom remains intact.
And if you can, hug a veteran.
We truly owe them our lives.
Thanks for visiting today.
Big hugs! Passionista Mimi
