Courage is contagious. When one brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened. ~Billy Graham

Today’s thankful post is easy. I am thankful for everyone who has served our country in the Armed Forces. I am proud to count so many people in my life as veterans – my father, my brother, both my brother-in-laws, members of my church family and so many friends are all veterans.

I am especially thankful for our freedom; freedom that would not exist without the courage and selflessness of the U.S. military.  Thank you for your selflessness, thank you for your sacrifices, thank you for your commitment and thank you for your bravery.
