FOR OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN
I can't say names, I can't make too much reference to him at this time because even though he is stateside, he is still military and could be found and hurt if anyone were to read anything specific about him...Suffice it to say...I love him and am SO very proud of him!
Remember a couple weeks ago when the helicopter went down in Afghanistan? and our 30 service men and/or women were killed?? I remember thinking of this person I love and glad he wasn't there as he was called stateside...but sad for those families that were so devastated by the sacrifice they made for our freedom to a country who doesn't seem to appreciate the sacrifice since it was the locals who leaked information...sigh...
This helicopter and company was one that this person I love was a part of...he lost friends...he is left to feel guilty in some ways because he wasn't there with them...and sad that he has lost some who fought with him...and sad for their families...it is hard to have served as he has, seen and experienced what he has...and left to live and work and continue to serve our country here...Please pray for him and those who have lost so much...
I want him to know how very proud of him I am...how I pray for him often!...AND, I will continue to be proud as I have found out that he was chosen to be trained (the best of the best they choose for this) to serve as protection for the president should he ever need it...
NOW, on to sunnier thoughts...I just can't seem to let go of my sunflower arrangement...so here are a couple more fun ones that will signify the end...as they are loosing petals now...but they have left us with smiles and good reference!!
