Honoring Veterans Today!

Today I want to take a moment to honor all veterans! We thank you all for your time and service to help us to feel safe and secure when we rest in our beds at night. Here is a poem written by Ashley Persyn Called Freedom is not free. 

Freedom is not Free 
by Ashley Persyn 

There is a price we pay for freedom 
For it is not truly free 
But rather paid for by the contributions of veterans 
To buy our liberty 

As their blood drains from their body and runs like a river through the grass 
Over the years it's forgotten, war is placed in our past 
I don't think we all realize the importance veterans play
as they voluntarily serve America each and every day 

We should honor the veterans for they act like a shield
Protecting us from danger, keeping America healed. 
So if you would take a second to commemorate 
You will instantly see 
We owe veterans our gratitude 
For they are the reason we are free 

Here are a few of photos in honor of my favorite Veteran! Happy Veterans Day Honey! To the world's best father, husband, teacher and Vet!

Beautiful! Top of Mt. Fuji!

He does stuff like this all the time. He lives for adventure!
 Now I know where our boys get it from. Thank you honey for having such a great adventurous spirit!

 This is a great Black and white photo. He is the one in the back row on the farthest left side.
 I guess no one else was brave enough to face the vicious monster But my Marine!
My favorite photo of my favorite Vet! 


  1. Awesome! Big Thanks to your hubby for protecting our freedoms that we take for granted. ♥ ya Abby!

  2. HA HA HA, Yep the only reason he was in that dog suit was he was very brave and very new... :) Lance is truly a warrior and a friend. It is in his soul.

  3. Thank you George! It is so true!

  4. Glad you are doing this my sweet daughter of mine, yes he should be recognized for all he and other vets have done and are doing for our country. Grandpa I wish was here to share in this with you. He is one that I cherish and honor even though he is no longer with us. The flag that was given to me by the President of United States has great meaning to me. Thanks Ab for your great steps your taking to improve all of our lives. Love MOM XOXO
