There were times….

There were times I didn’t know exactly where my husband was. Or when he would be coming home. But it’s not what you think….

For all of my anxiety it must have been ten times worse for him. Flying in airspace that maybe wasn’t safe or living in a tent pitched in the sand for months.

Mr. Décor, and every other veteran who has put his or her life on the line, I thank you for my freedom.

God bless America.

The blessed wife of  Retired Master Sergeant Eric C. Gunn

To see the other veterans in my family who have served their country you can go HERE.

Laura, I LOOOOVE our fighting men. I'm a warrior's wife, Sugar! You give that man a hug and a kiss from me, a little ole lady in Idaho who just adores him for what he has sacrificed for his country. My hubs is a retired Marine and there were 2-13 month separations from him and me and the kids. It was hard but I knew he was doing what all warriors do: protecting our country, which isn't becoming as popular as it used to be. So you be sure and tell him I love him for his honor. Also, Applebee's is free tomorrow night for any vet! Love Bunny and I will definitely be there. Also, Texas Roadhouse gives vets free dinners on Veteran's Day. My thanks to those restaurants, and any others, who serve our vets and honor them!!!

xoxo,
Connie

What a wonderful tribute.
I'm grateful for the service of all these wonderful young men and women who put personal comfort and safety aside to serve their country. And for their families at home who are also giving of themselves, for the love of their country.
Thank you

Linda said...

Laura,
This is a beautiful tribute to your dear husband.

I have no experience with veterans in my family because my Dad was never able to serve and I'm not familiar with any of the relatives who served, but I admire all vets for their sacrifices made on our behalf. ♥

Love, Linda

Thank you Mr. Decor and God Bless... You and your lovely family, willing to sacrifice, most of the times, as Miss Laura's words show, to the frightening unknown.

Heartfelt post Laura! I missed the tears you can bring to my eyes with your gentle words flowing directly from the heart... (and good choice, Mr. Decor was hot ;)).

A poppy on your family's door step and Thank You!!!

The Boston Lady said...

I well remember when Mr. Decor was deployed to various areas and how proud our family was and still is of his service to our country. (I think I have that picture around here somewhere!) May we all stop and reflect on the sacrifices all our veterans have made so we may live the lives we do. Ann

Debbie said...

Beautiful and to the point. Send my sincere thanks to Soldier Decor from me!

So thankful for the willing self-sacrifice of these men and women for our greater good. My husband, dad, and father-in-law are vets.

So thankful for the ones still serving in today's armed forces.

What a wonderful tribute to your husband Laura! Not only am I grateful to the men and women that serve to protect our nation's safety and freedom but also the families of these serving men and women. I think people like you and the other families have sacrificed time away from loved ones.
So thank you to the men, women and their families for our safety and freedom.
