I went to a Veterans Day assembly at my daughter's school Summit Elementary yesterday. Talk about a tear jerker! My daughter is in choir and had a solo part. My dad was in attendance (Marine Vietnam Vet). The choir sang a couple awesome songs, one of them honoring each branch of the Military and if you were a Veteran of that branch they asked that you stand up during that part of the song. When my dad stood up during the Marine part of the song, I could feel & see all the little eyes turning to look at him in the audience. That's when it really hit me. I have always had an appreciation and respect for soldiers and my Dad, but now it's on a whole other level.
Thank You to all the Veterans and current soldiers who serve our beautiful Country.
