Veterans Day and Fort Hood

From my heart today–this Veterans Day 2009–I speak my appreciation and gratitude for every person who has served our country by involvement in the military division of the United States of America. At times unsung, unappreciated, misunderstood, forgotten–you have yet stood your post, and kept your charge. You have guarded my babies and me. You have kept us safe. Thank you.

Many of you have made the supreme sacrifice, shedding your blood on both foreign soil, and recently and sadly, on our own earth–the earth of America. Thank you.

Many of you are now elderly, shaking and unsteady.

And some…were mere babies. Thank you…and to the families, my thoughts and prayers.victims_300x90

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
