to serve this country. I just want to
say THANK YOU! You are forever in my
heart and prayers. I have former
students in dangerous places I think about every day, and readers of this blog
who serve a world away! You are amazing
and I so respect you. Military women are inspiring for many reasons.

scarf. My father wore this scarf as a

scars remain from service. These
incredible men and women pay such a high price.
