Our focus is on the veterans as we get closer to Memorial Day. We give thanks to our brave men and women that serve our nation and keep our country safe, preserving our freedoms. We pray for comfort for those that have lost loved ones in the past and for those that have family serving now in these very dangerous times.
My husband was in the U.S. Navy and I married my childhood sweetheart in the last year of his service. He had already had his year at sea during the Lebanon crisis. We spent that last year at NAS Jacksonville, Florida before going back to our home state of Wisconsin to start our family.
