Every year I post about this so I really hope that you don't get tired of it. Do you remember what you were doing when you heard about the terrorist attack on our nation? We had just moved to Washington state the beginning of August, only married for about 6 weeks and we were asleep...until my phone rang and my girlfriend was on the phone crying telling me to turn on the television. We did...my husband immediately called he boss to see if the day would change. Nope, come to work as usual...4 years later he was deployed to Iraq. And experience both he and I will never forget. Tears still come to me as I think of all the ways that the men and women that deploy to conflict will change. It may be a little change or a big change but they change and how could they not.
Every night we eat dinner together my husband prays for the troops that are serving our country in foreign or domestic places, we thank them, ask God to guide and protect them, and support them as we can.
Please don't forget...don't let those who perished that day and in the conflicts since be lost in a distant memory.
Thank you to all who are serving our country in uniform this Sept 11th! And even though we are retired Army...once Army always Army...Hooah!
