grateful girl: veteran's day

this week's grateful girl post is dedicated to veterans:
thank you for your service in the u.s. armed forces and to our country.

i am very grateful for my upbringing as an air force brat.
my dad's career in the air force afforded us many opportunities,
all of which kept us in the lower 48,
and allowed us to live in colorado springs and fort walton beach, fl
(among other not-so-scenic places).
both my grandfathers served in the air force, along with one uncle 
and my brother-in-law is currently stationed at charelston, afb.

my heritage has taught me respect & admiration for those who serve.
thank you to the men & women who served our country
and thank you to those serving today
in the air force, army, marines, navy, and coast guard.
