Memorial Day With Marines...

Have you ever spent a Memorial Day with Veterans? Well, today was a lovely day. I did spend it with Marines. I don't like to focus on the danger of war. I never sit on my high horse and preach anything.

My husband is a marine officer. He looks lovely in is dress uniform. I get in trouble for calling it a "beautiful outfit." Hmmm...Even today I said that during a memorial service on CNN. However, they really do have the most beautiful outfits..:)
I watched the "Wounded Warrior" that we had Tivo'd during the week. If you can watch it..or catch it somehow...I suggest it! It doesn't matter how you feel about the war. Wateching that documentary just brought it soooo home. My Major Dad was there. He did all of that. It scared me to death. I can't even imagine.

I am here to say to our warriors, wounded or not...Thank You. I'm full from the BBQ, crispy from the sun...but thankful to be with some men who sacrificed more than I think I am capable of doing.

I love you guys...

They sure do have the "most beautiful outfits!" lol I can't say enough about how appreciative I am of our military men and woman!! We also watched old war movies all day (couldn't get hubby away from them). But I have also been razzed about not using the proper naming of the uniforms, so don't feel bad!! lol Thank God for our Marines!!!
