This Veteran’s Day


ImageEvery year one of my three youngest sisters takes me out on Veteran’s Day to eat. Sometimes I go out with my dad, who is also a US Navy veteran like me. He likes to look for the free Veteran’s Day meals that are offered on or after Veteran’s Day, which is this Sunday, 11 November.

This Monday I’ll be going out with my parents, my nephew, and my daughter to Golden Corral. They will be giving all Veteran’s and Active Duty members a free meal for their service.Image

For anyone wishing to find a free meal or discount this Veteran’s Day, check out this website: http://themilitarywallet.com/veterans-day-free-meals-and-discounts/

For those that are still serving, my continued thoughts and prayers are always with you and your family!

A BIG thank you to all my military brother’s and sister’s, past and present, for your service!

A day of remembrance for me


I meant to post this yesterday, but I had been so tied up with biology homework. Twelve years ago yesterday was my first day of boot camp. I think most of us veterans remember that day all too well. Nine weeks of ‘WTF did I decide to put myself through?’ But when the day came to graduate boot camp, I didn’t have to look back at those nine weeks, as the next four years were going to be one heck of a ride and something I’ll always remember.
