Because It's Real
I normally post TAPS for Memorial Day. A tribute to all those who have given their lives for our country and our freedom and the freedom of others for over 200 years.
I am the mother of a child enlisted in the Marine Corps. Delayed Entry Program and entering Recruit Training later this year in the hopes of becoming a soldier. She was in first grade when our country was attacked on 911 and that is when this journey began. I would like to take a moment from the cookouts and the parties and 'Special Sales' to especially note the soldiers who have given their lives in the most recent decades, all the way up to last week. Please take a moment to visit this site and perhaps say a little prayer for their families and our nation.
