I probably cry more during this weekend than any other weekend throughout the year. Having been a military brat, I have been around soldiers and veterans more than the average Joe or Joette. Posts thanking the service people make me cry, commercials on veterans make me cry. I should have joined the military right after college. My dad's best friend tried to get me to join...even dangling a job at The Stars and Stripes but I had plans. Now I don't remember them but oh how different my life would have been! Now I can't think of anything I did that was worthy other than writing and that's only been recently. If I could go back, I would have joined the Air Force. Followed in my father's footsteps. It's a scary yet fantastic life to have in the military. Oh but the places you will go. So this weekend I give thanks to the men and women, past, present, and future who have and will sacrifice so much to protect us and our interests so that we continue to have our freedoms and follow our dreams.
