So many have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
For our right to come and go, shop, eat and whatever else we want to do.
My husband is one of those who serves in the military. He is not one to acknowledge his service but today, on this day - Memorial Day I want to honor him.
You see when Charlie went to Heaven he was overseas in Italy.
He may not have paid the ultimate price with his own life but he did pay by missing so much of his son's. Through it all he has never given up faith and has become closer to God even with all the anger and question within.
I couldn't be more proud to call him my husband and the father to our amazing children.
Thank you pizzles! We love you so much and I know that Charlie was right there with you as you crossed the line today at the Fallen Heros (Randy's Race) 5K.
Cheering daddy on at the race! :)
Eden Prarie Fallen Heros Memorial where the 5K was held.
The team! Go Navy!
Chief Kettle ran the 5K in just under 40 minutes with his full gear of 75 lbs. The statement says:
"Never left behind. Always remembered! For all the fallen, For my fallen."
I cried just reading this. Death is truly the hardest part of this life.
