Veteran's Day-Honoring all Who Served and Are Serving

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Our Heroes
Our Defenders
Our Protectors
Our Brave


Thank-you to all of our veterans... and may God continue to bless the United States of America!

I would like to honor a few people in my life who have served and are serving.....

My Dad-Vietnam, Navy
My Cousin Captain Erin Kilroy Berard, Marines---Operation Iraqi Freedom---this is a picture of her Captain's ceremony...love you girl!
Captain James Berard, Marines...Erin's husband who is currently serving in Iraq..Not that she is counting down or anything...but her blog says he is set to return in 104 days, 13 hours, and 33 minutes!
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers for a safe return to his beautiful wife!

James and Erin....The Faces of Freedom!
