While you should honor the people in your heart EVERY DAY, Memorial Day is not a holiday for that. It isn’t about every person you’ve ever lost to death – it *IS* about every active duty military personnel ‘…who gave their lives in service to our country during a time of war…’

That’s it. These individuals, regardless of your political standings on war and military service, deserve at least one day where you take a moment and think about their sacrifices.

And not to be forgotten — take a moment to honor and remember the animals used by the military and had their lives taken from them.

The desire to travel nurtured by every new duty station of her military family moves has stuck with her. When she is not busy being a cat servant and dog-mom, she enjoys exploring new places and dark chocolate.
