Memorial Day Shout Outs

my dad is an army vet.  as is his brother.  they also happen to be two of my favorite men on the planet.  today i honor their service to our country.  really i should do it everyday.  the men and women who serve, have served and given their lives for us, deserve so much more than a blog post.  if you run into a vet today, shake his hand, buy him a drink, pay for his family’s dinner, whatever gesture settles right on your heart.

happy Memorial Day, Dad and Uncle Buddy.  i love you both.

your turn.  give someone you love a Memorial Day shout out.

if they have a twitter account, post it in the comments and i will give them a shout out today.

this is craig’s friend, scott and his two sisters.  they wrote and recorded this.  so beautiful.

    My uncle Dan was in the army in the 80s.

    My little brother Mark signed up for the Guard in the early 2000s, but was injured in a motorcycle accident and discharged before he even got to basic training. He still signed up to serve though.

    My friend Stevie is an army medic and she just got back from a tour in Iraq.

  4. To Daddy, Papa, Grampa, Uncles Bill, Bert and Bruce for setting the example, and my cousins Casey and J.T. for joining me.

    To all the men and women in my unit, for making that one weekend a month bearable.

    That was SUCH a beautiful song.

    A heartfelt “thank you!” goes out to all of those in uniform – past, present, and future.

  7. […] Memorial Day Shout Outs  –  This is one of my favorite blogs to visit, but that’s not why I’m sending you there today. Meredith posted a song that was written by some friends of her husband in honor of veterans. It’s very inspiring. […]
