I read this quote recently:
"America will never run....And we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders" - George W. Bush
We are lucky to live in a country that is free and thriving, full of countless opportunities and even in tough times, the chance to follow a dream. And most importantly, in my opinion, we are lucky, like President Bush said, to have "such brave defenders" of this great nation. Defenders that make it safe for us to follow those dreams and take advantage of our freedoms. I am a military spouse and although there are times (many, many times I'll admit) when I disagree with things that the military does and the transient lifestyle, on a whole, I am extremely proud of my husband and proud of his mission.
On Friday night Wright-Patterson Air Force Base held their annual "TATTOO" event to honor the military members for their hard work. It is a great family event that includes yummy food, great music, flyovers and fireworks. Perhaps the best part, of course, are the friends.
We had a great time with our friends, celebrating America and celebrating our freedom. God Bless America.
