For those that know me, know that I love the military, HOOAH. I’m a Navy brat and an Army wife. While this post has absolutely nothing to do with the science behind personal care products, it has everything to do with honoring our nation’s Veterans.
As my bio states, I have strong convictions and I’m not afraid to defend them. I am not a follower, even to this day. I believe in right and wrong. Truth and lies. And you’re only as good as your word. The military and my parents instilled this in me.
My husband is on his 25th year in the Army. The military has been very good to me and my family. Growing up in a military home, I learned discipline from a very early age. Moving every 3 years molded my personality. Saying goodbye to old friends and hey to new friends was an emotional cycle, and one I’m very glad to have experienced. It especially helped me in my teenage years when being a follower would have been an easy choice.
When my husband Prevo returned home in 2006 from a tour in Iraq, he wrote the song, ‘Veteran’s Hand’. It’s about his experience while being in a foreign land, away from the comforts of home and everything you know. Away from everything you hold to be true and dear to your heart. Last year, Dennis, a brother in arms, contacted Prevo to ask permission to use his song in a video to honor Veterans. I’m sharing that video with you today.
Our Nation’s Veterans, past and present, deserve to be honored for their dedication, service and sacrifice. A favorite quote by Gen. MacArthur says it all, “Duty,” “Honor,” “Country” – those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you want to be, what you can be, what you will be”.
Thanks to all Veterans and their family members. I greatly appreciate your dedication, service and sacrifice. You will never be forgotten.
