I have a grandfather that stormed the beach at Normandy. Another that won a Purple Heart. An Uncle in the Air Force, another in the Army. My father was a Navy pilot, and so was my husband.
I look at the long illustrious line of military in my family and I am so grateful. Grateful for the freedoms that they provided us, and the strong example they set for my son. For the security and safety that America has felt, knowing they were out there, protecting us.
I am not a military wife, not in the truest sense of the word. But I am. I am a military wife, daughter and granddaughter and I am proud to be so.
Happy Veterans Day.
