Veteran’s Day…from a Vet

I have struggled a bit with Veteran’s Day these last 3 years…maybe because the emptiness I STILL feel after retiring is very raw…still.  I miss being in the Air Force…every.single.day.

But I had a pretty great 20 years of service.  It was the hardest, most rewarding thing I have every done, and my service will always be one of my proudest accomplishments.  I didn’t fight in any wars, other than several of my own…but I supported so many that DID set boots on the ground.

Here’s a few pics…

Basic training...can you find me?

I’ll keep this one short and sweet, but leave you with this…remember always the battle that was fought for your freedom.

  1. My brother is in the Canadian Military and has been away. Remembrance Day to me is more important the other “holidays” as I know what the families go through when their loved ones are away yet can’t even begin to understand what the soldiers have gone through. Thank you for serving.

  2. Wow it’s been 3 years! I can’t believe it! I’m so thankful to you as a fellow veteran and dear friend. You served in so many ways despite no boots on the ground. You are always a person ive looked up to chelle! Thank YOU for the service and friendship these past 13 years! Wow-yup we met in 2001 so that’s right! I’m so proud of you. Love you very much.
