How many veterans do you have in your life? I have three in my life. My grandpa was in the Merchant Marines during World War II.

My husband served in the Air Force for eight years as a flight nurse. He was stationed in Germany and New Hampshire. Luckily, he was serving in a time of peace, so he didn't see any action as far as having to fly in and out of active war zones.

And of course, you all know my son is a Marine.
Today, on this 238th birthday of our country, let's remember and pray for the men and women, from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror, who have bravely fought, died or come home forever changed by their experiences. Let's pray for those currently deployed that they will remain safe. Let's pray for those who will be brave enough to step up and answer the call in the future to protect our freedom. We may not be a perfect country, but my heart swells with pride and I have to swallow the lump in my throat every time I see a flag waving in the breeze, or a hear the Star Spangled Banner being played.
So be sure to thank the veterans or active duty service people in your life. They have had a hand in making this country great!
To celebrate the Fourth of July, I made this fun little resource that you can use to teach your children about some of the Heroes of the Revolutionary War. If you click on the picture, you can download the file from my Google Docs. Enjoy!
