Celebrating Courage In Our Service Men & Women

“Give Honor and respect to all those to whom it is due.” 
Romans 13:7 TLB

Thank you is such a small thing to say to someone who traverses the globe to defend the freedom that my family and I enjoy everyday.

Thank you is such a small thing to say to someone who puts their life on the line, so I don’t have to.

Thank you is such a small thing to say to the soldier who comes home wounded in body or spirit. 

Thank you is such a small thing to say to the family who prays and waits for the return of their loved one.

Thank you is such a small thing to say to the one who gave the ultimate sacrifice and came home in a coffin covered with the flag.

Still, today I say thank you with all of my heart for your sacrifice. Courage shines through you all each day. Blessings to you and your families.  

This Whole Weekend On My Blog we are honoring our Service Men and Women!!!
If you know someone who has served honorably for freedom, leave a message including their first name, the war they served in, rank and a message you may want to share to thank or honor their courage. 
      
Those who read this post, please pray for each family in the comment list. Invite others to join in the celebration of courage. 
Who would you like to honor?

    Beautiful, Michelle. My father served in the Navy, and I married into a military family. I’ll be thinking about who to share about on here. Thank you for honoring military men and women in this way.

    My husband served in WW2, and I had two good friends to get killed in ‘Nam. So many of my friends served in the Armed Services. Thank you for honoring our service men and women!

  5. My father in law, Albert Knack Sr, is a retired Army Veteran who served in the Korean War. Our son, PVT2 James Knack, joined the Army National Guard when he turned 17. Hard to believe it’s been almost 2 years. He is with the Camp Ripley unit and waiting orders. Thank you for all those who have served our country!

    My FIL served in Viet Nam, two tours, I believe. My father served in the navy, but I’m not sure if he saw battles….. My grandfather served in WW1, but he died before I was born. One brother-in-law served in the Marine Corps, and my husband and other brother-in-law served in the Air Force. All are retired now.
    Thanks, again, Michelle!

  7. Edie Melson says:

    Thank you for this, Michelle! Our Son, James Melson served in the Marine Corps as a Corporal. He was in the Iraqi Freedom conflict from 2006-2010 as a front-line infantry Marine. He taught us that true heroism has very little to do with mighty acts, only the quiet fulfillment of commitment—no matter the cost.
