a huge thank you to all our men and women of the armed services who don't get a day off of work today or may not enjoy a cook out.

there's one soldier i'm particularly thinking of.
he's serving his third year deployment in Iraq.

ever since he was little he dreamt of flying in helicopters.

today he is flying in black hawks, a brave gunner.

He isn't a soldier first when it comes to me...

He's my older brother Marco, who i miss more than words.

i can't wait for you to come home Marco!!! your family misses and loves you and Thanks God every day for keeping you safe for us. xoxo

(if you wrote my brother -- THANK-YOU-- he sent many of you sweet lovies American flags that flew over the Iraq sky. You can see this in the 2nd picture. All the photographs came from my brother's pictorial diary)

I'm so thankful for our brothers, fathers, cousins, sisters, mothers, aunts, uncles and friends who fight and have fought for freedom. *HUGS* to your brother and my thoughts & prayers are with all our servicemen and women today and always.


♥Aubrey said... is their day! The day we honor the brave men & women you give/gave their lives for our freedom.
I was lucky enough to get a phone call from my hubs who is as well overseas right now fighting in this war. It was THE perfect day for such a call.
Thank you to ALL service members. They don't hear those words enough.
