To those who serve

Its hard to be a part but not a part of the military life. There’s so much I don’t know and am outside of given I’m not married to a military man, but only dating him; however, its still very much a real aspect that affects every day of my life. Being honored to know and love someone who willingly joined our US military to serve our country is just that, a real honor.

He endures more than the average man his age, and faces many hardships and uncertainties that are more than some people could bare, but he does it because he wanted to be in the military and he’s proud of that. He knew the risks before joining and knows them now and still chooses to serve. Many men and women have sacrificed their lives and when people say it was a waste, it makes me sad. No one who joins the United States military would ever believe losing their life for their country was wasteful.

With that I’m forever grateful to G-man for willingly and unselfishly serving our country each and every day and to all of those who bravely gave their lives so I could sit here in my freedom to write and say what I want. I remember you today and every day.

Amen! Living in a military area, you come to appreciate the sacrifice of serving. Spouses are gone long stretches of time, missing so many of their families milestones. Some never return and those are the stories that are so difficult to see. I love traveling over the number of bridges here and looking out at the carriers and different vessels in the water or dry dock areas. They are so massive and powerful and never cease to amaze. My grandfather witnessed the flag raising of Iwo Jima and I heard countless tales of war from him when I was younger. I think there are fewer and fewer people who really understand the sacrifices that were made many years ago for the freedoms they have today.
