Armed Forces DayArmed Forces Day is tomorrow but we don’t want to miss the one day a year set aside to celebrate our military and the opportunity to say thank you so very much. Freedom is not free.  Yes, we have all heard that. But make no mistake about it. Our military and their families make sacrifices most people could never realize. They pay the price for it and it is so very important to stop, think, and thank them anyway you can.

Could you leave your family for a year? Could you leave your family for a year realizing you may not come back? Our brave men and women do it as a way of life. Think about that. An entire year. Your young kids will be taller in a year. They will change. You will miss all the little things. Their first steps, first words.

These men and women defend our nation while we go to work everyday, play golf, do whatever we want, when ever we want. Do they do it for the money? Please… Do that do it for the fame? No. Many of them are 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation military.

Think your having a bad day?  Bills, family, screaming boss,etc. Try losing three of your best friends in one day or God for bid, your limbs.

The life many in our military live is not for the weak at heart. Don’t let tomorrow go by as just another Saturday. In today’s world of Social Media, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, it is easier than ever to express yourself.

Lets all join together tomorrow and really thank our military men and women no matter if they are retired or enlisted.

Memorial Day is for honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. But Armed Forces Day is a day to celebrate so hey, lets celebrate!

Thank you again and may God bless all who have served, are serving, and will serve.
