It Gets Me Every Time

Veteran's Day.....

We went to Angie's school program today in honor of Veteran's Day.... They sang all the patriotic songs, sang all of the anthems from each branch, recognized each and every former and current member of the military and listened as a WWII P.O.W. told his story.

I don't know why, but all of that stuff gets me so emotional.... every time!! I love to watch and listen as the kids sing those songs to honor our country and learn about the military who serve our country!!

At the end of the service, the played TAPS and then had a moment of silence.... first of all TAPS will make me cry anytime I hear it; but then to watch as each and every member of the military, raised their hands in salute as it was played--- it just gave me chills.

Gosh, we have no idea what is was (is) like to be in another country, against their people-- fighting for your life (because they really are doing that)!!

Thank you all for your service to our Country!!
