Thankful and Proud

Today is a day to honor ALL armed service veterans who have served in our military. To acknowledge their sacrifices. To recognize their contributions. They fight for our freedom and defend our nation.

I cannot listen to Proud To Be An American without crying.


I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.
 
~~Proud To Be An American

Shutterfly is giving each one of us an opportunity to create a card to Thank The Troops. Over 1.5 million troops serve our great nation. Many of them will be overseas and thousands of miles away from
their families over holiday season. Please join Shutterfly in their mission to send
a thank you card to every American hero.
