Veterans Day “A tribute to our troops”

Veterans Day is to celebrate the men and women who have fought for our country and our freedom. In this world people take them for granted and they do not think about the sacrifices they have made throughout their life.

Making it through all those years of fighting and find all being able to enjoy their life.  Americans owe them a great deal of gratitude for the wonderful job they have done. Americans need to take care of our veterans and make sure that they are  recognized for everything they have done for all Americans.  If you have the chance to shake their hands and thank them for all they have done because they  deserve the recognition of all they have done.

No one can imagine the things that they have seen or gone through during those times.  How hard it must be for some veterans to forget the horrors of war.  Nothing can replace the scenes of war, loss of men,  and the loss of loved ones during these times.  They are the  true hero’s and I would like to take the time to say “Thank You” for everything that you have done.

To all who are still with us,  to the ones fighting right now, and to those  who are no longer with us in this world but in our hearts we salute you and all that you have done.

Thoughts About Memorial Day  

Memorial Day is approaching it is a time that people celebrate what our troops, veterans, and people who are overseas are doing to keep our country safe. It is celebrated on the final Monday in May so that we may remember those who have fought for our country. Even though they are not with us today they will always be in our hearts and souls. You know it has to be hard for them to come home to their families and try to forget about the horrors that they have witnessed during any of the wars that this country has fought.


For everything that they do to protect, and serve their community and fellow Americans they should receive the recognition from everyone. There are too many veterans out there that are not receiving the help that they need to come to terms with the things that they have seen all over the world. Some people say that if you have ever served in the war that the things that you experienced during that time is something that you do not want to talk about because of the memories that it leaves in your mind.


When you look at these grave sites you see millions of soldiers that fought for their country and died in the process. They gave their life serving our country and we would not be here today if they had not given their life during the war. It takes quite a bit of energy to make it through the wars and live your life without the fear of bombs, guns, and other things going off around you.

In researching, about the longest living veterans of World War I the information contained in the research states that Frank Buckles was the last oldest World War I veteran who passed away in “2011”. He lived to be 110 years old after serving so many years of watching the horrors of war! He was a handsome man who gave so many years to serving in the war and for his country. What a life to live!


I hope that you appreciate the sacrifices that these soldiers have made for our country. We as Americans owe them gratitude, and recognition for all that they do or have done for America. If you see someone in uniform shake their hand and thank them for all that they have done! Do not be afraid to show these soldiers respect because after all that they have gone through they deserve the respect and the gratification that people are thankful for the things that they have done for our country.

In honor of those who have given their life because of the casualties of war! I commend you for all that you have done! For those who are currently serving I hope that you come home safe and sound to your families. You deserve the utmost respect from everyone around the world for everything that you do to protect our country.

Utmost Respect


The people that deserve the utmost respect in this world includes a variety of people. From our elderly, to the soldier’s that fight everyday for our freedom, and to the ones that have inspired us to do our best throughout the rough times in our life.

Not a day goes by that I hear the younger crowd making fun of the elderly. They disrespect them for many reasons. It saddens her heart when she sees people sucker punching, robbing, raping, and treating the elderly with disrespect. She does not understand why people do such things to the elderly. You know people are strange when it comes to the elderly. They think that they are too picky when it comes to certain things in the world. However, they have earned the right to be picky! They have gone through many things in their lifetime. “The Great Depression”, World War I, World War II, and many other things. Anyone that has managed to survive these things deserve to be picky with everything in their life because they earned it.

The elderly have some fantastic stories to share with anyone that will listen to them. They have lived their life and just want someone to talk to. Many of them have outlived spouses, children, and all other family members. I personally enjoy listening to what the elderly have to say because they have gone through many things. Listening to their stories, reading to them, and spending time with them is something that makes them happy.

We have made a decision with our children for the upcoming school year since we homeschool we will be taking them to read to the elderly, and to listen to the stories that they have to tell. Everyone needs someone to talk to and many elderly people do not get that interaction unless it is from a doctor or family visiting. The children seem to be excited about the upcoming adventure.

Our soldier’s fight for our freedom everyday. Many people already give them the utmost respect that they deserve. I cannot imagine the things that our troops go through in a year’s time. They have spent most of their life fighting in wars, and giving up most of their life to fight for our country. They deserve the utmost respect from everyone in the world because they are the ones putting their life on the line for our freedom.

I wish to say Thank You to all the soldier’s that have fought or are fighting in these wars and appreciate the job that they are doing to keep our freedoms alive. They are the ones that deserve the respect from everyone.

Thank you for all that you do!

In my family heritage we have had soldier’s that have fought in World War I, and possibly World War II. I am still doing the research but it is amazing to say the least that when you trace your history back this far you find out some interesting facts about your family.
