Memorial Day

Monday, May 28, 2012

Today is a very important day in history and it's a very important holiday to remember for my family. I have many family members and close friends who have served our country and are still serving today. I continuously pray for their safety and courage. I am so thankful for all of those who continually fight for our country. 

Today, I had the honor of sitting down with my Dad, who served in the Navy during the early 1970s. He has some incredible stories and neat vintage photos that I enjoyed looking at very much. It was really cool to see how so many emotions and memories my Dad had just from looking at his old photos. 

I just wanted to dedicate this post to him because I am so proud of his courage and strength for serving our country during some critical times in history. Dad, you are someone I look up to and admire. Thank you for all you have done, I am proud to call you my Dad. 

Thank you to all the Men and Women who continually serve for our country! 

This will be a shorter post, because I think the photos speak for themselves really.
