Gratitude Challenge: Day 11

November 11, Veterans Day, is day 11 of the gratitude challenge issued by Brenda over at Garden of learning.  Of course, on this day I am going to take the opportunity to thank the following 2 men and countless other men and women who have sacrificed for their country.  As I mentioned yesterday, my Grandfather was a proud Marine and I believe that Chris' Grandfather served in the Marines also.  Both of these awesome men served their country with Honor and Pride.
I can't thank these men enough for the sacrifices that they made for both family and country.  We as a family are so thankful for the rights that the Armed Forces of America have fought and died for.  Thankfully, my family members made it back home alive; but countless others gave their lives in defense of country.
We must never forget to honor their memory and to thank those living for their selfless service.  Head on over here to see what others are grateful for on this November 11th; Armistice Day, Remembrance Day or Veterans Day.
