For the ones...

This is for the ones who take to the deserts risking their lives while I go for a boat ride and enjoy the waves.
For the ones who sit behind a desk guiding UAV's , who go suffer the mental turmoil of firing bombs one minute and having dinner with their families the next,

For the ones who work the night shift making sure every plane, ship, and tank is ready to go,

For the ones who bear the weight of the world's troubles on their shoulders and try to do something about it,

For the ones who miss birthdays and graduations,

For the families who are left behind,

The wives who are left in the dark and hold the family together in the soldier's absence,

This day I honor you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your work. I understand the courageous burden you bear. Your service and sacrifice is not taken for granted or unappreciated.

For my husband, Thank you for putting "service before self" at the office, on the line, and in our home. I love and miss you!


  1. I couldn't have said it better myself. This just puts a HUGE smile on my face when I think of our military men! (Okay and a tear in my eye as well) :) I love you!
