What happened to all the parades? What happened to the honor and respect we showed as a nation to those who gave their all and some the ultimate sacrifice of dying for their country. I'm longing for the 'good, old days' when it wasn't about stretching it into a three day weekend, I'm longing for little ones to be waiting on the curb when the bands come marching by playing John Phillip Sousa. I want to never forget what we were as a nation and what we can be...again.
Thank you to all those who serve so proudly in my place. Thank you for the lonely nights and days and months you spend away from your loved ones. Godspeed your return home.
My card today is in tribute for my family members who have worn a uniform of America. I used Artistic Outpost's Hero set of unmounted stamps.
