Today is Veterans Day here in the United States. We use this day to honor those who have served in our military. I would like to thank all those who have served and have fought for the American way of life and freedoms.
This holiday has special meaning for me this year as my son is forging a path to eventually enter the military. He is still in high school but has decided he wants to take 4 years of JROTC and he wants to attend the Air Force Academy or go to college thorough the ROTC program.
He informed me last week that he would like to join the Civil Air Patrol and has already joined the Color Guard and Drill Team at his school. I am happy that he is thinking about his future, but as a mother am a little concerned about world politics and whether that will put my son in harms way.
