I Honor the Veterans of our Nation

I honor and praise –
veterans of our country
fighting for freedom,
for United, we must stand
or divided we will fall.

  1. I am so glad to have found your post and equally glad to know another woman veteran like myself has served this great nation. I applaud you and thank you for your service!!

      1. I served long ago too. 29 years it is. I had a federal government job at the time that gave me a furlough do I could serve. Later on, I managed to get my brother to join up as well. We as women serving are an amazing group!!!

        1. I went into the Air Force in 1976. Seems like a lifetime ago! My husband is a 100% disabled Vietnam vet. We raised 5 kids together and he retired after 24 years. We are in Colorado near Peterson AFB and still use all the facilities. The military became a way of life.

          1. Wow, that is so nice! I went into the Army in January 1987, five months after getting a promotion at my federal job. Lol! My former husband was not military & our daughter us not thinking about joining. Good thing. My current fiancé of (gasp!) 15 years is not a veteran either but his late father was. Happen so, he and I were both in the signal communications division. I live in the suburban Long Island, NY and live very far from a military post. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything!!

          1. Now see, a lot of people won’t admit that–hahahahaha!! I’m very much like “Elwood” in “Harvey”, who is quite comfortable with his invisible friend–regardless that some folks think he’s at least “odd”, if not nuts! Especially as I’ve gotten older, I rather like the persona of the usually nice/maternal, dotty and possibly flighty woman who cooks and bakes (and who knows what else??) 🙂

        1. My Russian born grandfather served in the U.S. Army. My dad was Navy and my brother was Army. My husband is a 24 year disabled Vietnam Veteran. We also have two daughters that served in the Air Force. We are definitely a military family. <3

  2. All Hail the United States Air Force. I proudly served our country in the USAF too. I learned team spirit, and to eternally love the American flag. What a great experience!!!
