Bravo! Our Military Bravo!

Although this is BIG news already I have to put in a bit of two sense here.
I am not of military in any way, nor do I have family over their serving. But I do have friends of the sort who deal with that hurt every day. As well as family who has served in the past. To me it's unimaginable that someone could let their loved ones serve in the military, go to war, and be away from home most of their service lives.
After coming to terms with how and why, I began to see the honor and accomplishment that comes from those same people. They are proud, and supportive, strong, and brave all in the same package.

I could not do it, I am not that brave or strong, so I respect those people in every way imaginable.
I guess I just want to say thank you to all of our servicemen, and servicewomen. Those people who fight everyday, who spend years aways from their loved ones and family, friends and children. Today was a huge accomplishment for the people, and I hate that this comes to you on such a day when it should be acknowledged everyday. Thank you! Thank you thank you, for everything you do. You are Brave everyday even if we don't tell you. You are thought of everyday and every hour even if we don't mention it. We do know that because of you, and because your family allows you to serve that we are free, Free to speak our mind, free to be who we feel we are, and free to to LIVE everyday without being completely scared of the outcome.

Thank you to all who serve!
Thank you to the families who allow them to serve and deal with the pain of having them so far away.
Thank you to the world for supporting our troops, and everything that they believe in!

Thank you !

  10. My son-inlaw is a Captain in the Australian Defence Force and spend 8 1/2 month in East Timor last year. He left two weeks after his second daughter was born, he will not be here for his first daughters birthday for the third time and she will only be four.
