November is Military Family Appreciation Month, and today is Veterans' Day!
As most of you know, I am part of a military family, I also happen to be a US Army veteran. I enjoyed my time serving as a medic, and meeting new people at each of my duty stations.
I'd like to take some time today to thank each and every one of my brothers and sisters in arms - past, present, and future. And a very special THANK YOU to my family and close friends that are serving or have served in the military. There are WAY to many of you to name, but you know who you are! Love you guys.
In 2012, military families across America, more than 900,000 children experienced the deployment of one or both parents multiple times.
When the a military member is not deployed, their spouse is subject to the schedule given to them; countless hours of PT, missions, and all the military work involved. In some cases, the spouse is forced to leave their job - reducing their household income - due to relocating, having children, no childcare, and other reasons.
Dependents are the built-in support system for our military members. They offer the connection to home, offering their love and a letter right when the troops need it most. But it doesn’t stop there, military family members are there when those in service returns from deployment. They are the ones who help pick up the pieces. Like a behind-the-scenes crew, trying to clean up the mess and sometimes at a loss as to what they can do.
Make an effort to show your appreciation for our service members and their military family members. It might come in the form of dropping off a casserole, helping them plan a budget, fix a painted shut window, getting them a massage, or offering to take their kids for a few hours. Look at the many ways you can help out and DO it.
So, in honor of Veterans' Day and Military Family Appreciation Month, we’d like to say THANK YOU again to all the military families who are on the front lines of supporting the men and women who protect us.
