Honor Our Military

Updated on October 16, 2014

Lets Honor Our Troops Who Are Protecting Us And Our Freedom

While we sit in our warm, cozy homes this Christmas, hundreds of thousands of our troops are over seas, protecting our right, to sit in our warm, cozy homes. Thousands of husbands and wives, won't be watching their children open their presents around the tree. They won't be eating Santa cookies, left by the tree.

They will be eating their MRI's hunkered down behind a concrete wall, walking security detail so their fellow soldiers can try to relax a minute or two.

Remember everyone overseas is someones son,daughter, husband, wife, or your best bud.

My Superhero is...

All the men and women serving our country. They are trying to make our country a safer place for us to live. Freedom doesn't come cheap. A lot of our soldiers won't be coming home to their families, because They believe in what they are doing.

What I've learned from this person

I am thankful every day for all the people in my life. I have learned not to take for granted the freedom I have. I can walk out in public, wearing what I want, I can eat any food I feel like eating, I can jump in my car, and go to the park or visit family and friends without asking permission or going through border crossings. Freedom isn't free, our ancestors and our families have fought for the right to be free.

God Bless The U.S.A. - By Lee Greenwood

This is a very uplifting song. I love it. Hope you will too.

Not everyone can be in the military, but there are other ways to support your country.

Who is your Superhero? - One man to save them all.

Who would you send to end the war in Iraq?

Troops Are Coming Home - President calling all troops home.

Home Coming
Home Coming

Are our troops finally coming home? The President said yesterday at a conference the they would start deploying out in stages and should all be home by Christmas. I want to say Thank You to all the men and women who gave up their normal life to go and serve our country. The sacrifice they made for our country was great and I hope they all have a wonderful coming home with their families.

Thank You To Our Military.

      I agree... our soldiers are heroes. I have a lens about "God Bless The USA." It's a wonderful tribute to our armed forces, and a great song.
