Today's thoughts for me brought to mind our men and women who are still deployed in support of their Commander and Chief's orders. I rarely see a flag, a yellow ribbon or a, "Support Our Troops" sticker any more...  

As a retired military member and military family, I'm thinking about our American children, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, mom's and dad's who voluntarily signed a contract to serve our country and when given the directive to "go", proudly and willingly, they did.  

Speaking for me, my husband and our son, Aaron, “Been there, done that“, and politics aside (and I mean it, politics and opinion about our involvement aside), will anyone join me in thinking once again about our fallen, our deployed, and say a prayer for their safety and their often unbelievable living conditions? Say a prayer for their families who suffer as well, and consider flying your flag today and more often to honor them.  

If I'm speaking to you, The Robertson's say, THANK YOU!

    • Kelly, I pray for the men and women fighting for the freedom every day.
      I am ashamed to admit that you are absolutely right about showing our gratitude.
      I will fly my flag high today with pride.
      Thanks for this reminder, I really appreciate it.

    • I include all of the military and their families in my prayers. I love all of you for the many sacrifices you have made for this country. Without you we would not have the freedoms that we enjoy.  

      Thank you and God bless you.

    • I think of our men and women deployed all the time.  We can all just pray that they make it home safely.  I am so thankful that my nephew made it home safe. He spent a year in Iraq, his unit was attacked and thankfully they got out without anyone loosing their life.  Not unscathed...but no loss of life at least.
