First of all may God bless and help every veteran of the United States Armed Services today! Thank you very much for your service to our country and for the securing and maintaining of our freedom. Freedom is never free and our family appreciates your contribution.
We have been blessed to meet many, many men that have served our nation with distinction. Our Pastor Bennie D. Sutherland, my sister's husband, Jay Osborn along with many preachers and church members that we come to know in our travels placed their lives on the line in order to defend us. These men have left a deep impression on our lives and we thank God for every one of them.
However, the most important veteran in my life is my Dad, Eugene Boggs.
Dad served in the navy for four years in the early 1960's just before I discovered America. Thank you Dad for your service to our nation. I am thankful you served and also thankful that God preserved your life to come back home to our family. You are my hero and the hero of my little girl and your first grandchild. We could not be more proud of you and thankful for you.
Take some time to thank a veteran today.
