Memorial Day

To all those who are currently serving, have served in the past, or lost their lives in the process, thank you for your devotion to our country and military. You and your families are sacrificing so many things to ensure my family and my country's safety.

Some very special men in my life are especially appreciated.

PaPa (aka, my father-in-law) is retired after 24 years in the Army plus 2 (voluntary) tours in Vietnam. I don't know if he'll ever fully adjust to civilian life and I love him for it.

MunSoo is a Captain in the Air Force currently serving in South Korea. He's also been stationed in Germany and Iraq, in addition to previous stations in Korea. Today is an especially memorable Memorial Day for him, as he and his wife are at the hospital to have their first child.

Pa was in the Army and stationed in Germany during the Korean War.

Papa was in Army during the Korean War, too, but it ended before he left the country.

Thank you, again. Thank you, military families, as well. Thank you.

Thank you.
