Thank You For Serving

Memorial Day is tomorrow, and I just want to say thank you to all my readers who have served in the armed forces. I would like to hear your stories in the comments.

My father served in the army, all four of my uncles served in the navy, and my husband’s father was a marine (Once a marine, always a marine). One of my earliest memories was from when we were living on the army base in New York; I remember my sister and I playing tag under and around the tables in the mess hall.

When I was 20 years old, I seriously considered enlisting in the army, but my daughter was only a year and 1/2 old, and I didn’t want to be away from her for that long while I went to boot camp. I ended up losing her anyway, her dad took her out of state, years later, and I didn’t see her again for several years. I have often wondered how my life may have been different if I had enlisted.
