veteran's day...

Veteran's Day is a very important day for Ben and I. It is a day where we get to remember even more those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives to serve us and their country and to those who are still serving! We have the amazing priviledge to honor them and give them our thanks for all they do and are doing.

I want to honor Ben first and for most. I am a lil biased! Ben has gone beyond the call of duty and has put in his full effort to everything he has done or asked to do and that goes to this day as well. He has been honored, awarded and in all of that remained humble! Ben continues to live that same life today and continues to fulfill the line in the Ranger Creed that he will "never surrendur!" I am so proud of him, always will be!

Ben has lost alot of buddies, wives have lost husbands, husbands have lost wives, kids have lost parents, parents have lost much loss and some too soon but they are honored and will continue to be.

Please join us in continuing to honor every man and woman that has and still is serving us! They need it and don't need to be forgotten!
