I finished another book today. "Band of Sisters", by Annette Lyon. This is an amazing fiction book written about 5 women whose husbands are called to duty. In the military most of the time your family are the fellow members that surround you. I haven't served in the military, but I know it has to be a challenge. It has been said before by military wives, "You just don't GET it!!" None of us will ever know until we are in their shoes. But we pray daily for all who serve the country whether it is the family or the military member themselves. Each gives up a great sacrifice to protect our land. They aren't guaranteed that they will return safely. They just get up and go and protect our soil. Thank-you so much for all who have served our country, to all who are currently serving, and all who will fight and serve in the future. We honor you and will never forget the sacrifice you make.
