Today we salute those who serve our Nation and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free. We are free because others paid the price. Freedom is never free. Someone always pays. Thank you to all our veterans both past and present.

My father is being honored today in the Senior Adult Park where he and mom live. He is the oldest living veteran in their park and they are presenting him an American flag that flew over the Capital in Washington on his birthday. Dad served in the U.S. Navy during WWII in Pensacola, Fl. He served honorably and is part of the greatest generation. We are so proud of him and grateful for his serving our Nation.

When I see a U.S. service personnel from any branch of our military, I try to let them know we appreciate their serving. They keep America free. Thank God for everyone of them both at home and abroad.

I have a nephew, Jeremy Welborne, who is a U.S. Marine. He is training in California close to San Diego, California. He is becoming quite a man. He is a Marine. Enough said! They are putting him through his paces. I try to pray daily for him and remember all of our servicemen. They at least deserve our prayers.

Hundreds of thousands have died fighting in our military. Their blood purchased our freedom. Today we honor them.


  1. Dad, we are very proud and thankful for you. Thank you again for serving our Nation. We love you!
