Photo of the day, day 4

This flag and cap sit in a place of honor in my home. They are in memory of my beloved father-in-law who went to Heaven in November 2021. He had a military funeral and as the oldest child, my husband was awarded the flag with all his sisters’ approval.

Every day when I see this flag I am reminded of all the wonderful, brave, and self-less people who have served this country – on both sides of the political aisle. A Veteran is a veteran o matter who they voted for or what part they support. They performed an unselfish act of honor by serving to keep this country the great country it is and sacrificed family, home, jobs, and in some cases limbs and even lives for the cause of freedom.

If you know a veteran or see one today, you should thank them. Freedom isn’t free, peeps. It comes with a heavy cost.

    My stepdad served in Vietnam and now takes younger veterans on fly fishing trips as a form of therapy. His son served in the Gulf War. I have the utmost respect for those who serve our country. 🙂 Thanks for reminding us, Peg, and have a super day!
