Happy July 4th!

Posted by on July 4, 2016

It’s America’s birthday and I’m celebrating. I have an Army son heading off overseas and a Navy daughter doing her thing stateside. I’m toasting both of them today!What I write today will be… anything I want–gibberish, a short story, guest articles on crazy topics. I have no idea. My son’s in Kuwait protecting America’s distant shores. My daughter’s in San Diego preparing her LPD for some future battle. I’m here, thanking both of them and every other service member who accepted the calling to protect our nation’s freedoms.

For all of America’s warriors, God be with you.

    Jacqui, You must be very proud to have children who are serving our nation. Thank them and thank you for raising individuals who are willing to serve. God bless!

      They are wonderful adults. I smile just thinking of them. I’ll pass your kind words on, Carol.

    I’m curious why you have written about submarines. Does your daughter in the Navy work on Subs? Is there a sub based near where you live? Just wondering.

    Happy Independence Day! Good luck to your son and daughter! Thank God for people like them who protect this great nation of ours! And my thanks to you! I am getting so many great ideas from your web site!! I am currently working on my masters in education, and your site has helped me with my current class, technology in education. So thank you!

      Thanks for your kind thoughts to my two children. And good luck on your Masters. Education is amidst such radical changes, it is particularly challenging for students like you to keep on top of things. I’m glad I can help.
