This morning we all went to the Butternut High School for the Memorial Day Service by the American Legion. We received a Blue Star Banner for our Sarah, who is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army Reserves and serving in Afghanistan.
It was a nice service. I had no idea there were so many people in our community with loved ones in the military. I felt like part of a larger family. My sister, Mary, and her husband, John, received flags for her daughter, Theresa, who recently re-upped, and her husband, Matt, who also re-upped. Now there's a pair that military life seems to suit!
We stopped at Dad's on the way home and invited him over for bar-b-que, but he had just eaten and wasn't sure he'd come. That's ok. He's used to eating at certain times while we tend to eat whenever the chow gets done. Anyway, it is a beautiful day for Memorial Day. I hope you all remembered to buy a poppy. Please pray for our fallen soldiers and all those who serve our great country today.
