Veterans Day!

Here we are at Arlington National Cemetery to celebrate Veterans Day! We attended the United States Coast Guard wreath laying ceremony to honor veterans past and present. It is always touching to be in the presence of so many great men that have fought for our country.

The Coast Guard is referred to as the "Keepers of the Sea." I am so proud that John is a part of such a wonderful organization that serves our country faithfully. What a wonderful time of year to honor so many that have given there lives and continue to give there lives for our freedom.

John and I love our country and are so proud to be Americans. Today it was so cold and cloudy. As I took a minute to look around at all the graves, in the stillness was a kind of reverence that I believe these fallen men and women deserve. It was a privilege to be in Arlington national Cemetery. Ellie loves to see her Dad in uniform. He looks so handsome!

I love Arlington Cemetary also, it has such a spiritual peace. We've visited there a couple of times since we've been here. What an honor for John to be there in uniform!

So, I never recieved your email.

Where do you live?

We just found out Sean's company is moving us back on December 8th (way sooner then we thought). Is there anyway I can see you next week?
