Yesterday was Veterans Day-the perfect day to remember all the men, women and families who have sacrificed (and still continue to sacrifice) to make the United States such a great nation.
When I got home last night, my husband told me that Nebraska’s very own Governor Heineman invited Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hagemeister to be one of the individuals to unveil a new Medal of Honor Plaque during a special ceremony in the Nebraska’s Capitol Building. An announcement of this momentous occasion is available online by going to: http://www.governor.nebraska.gov/news/2013/11/08_honor_plaque.html
My husband is related to Lieutenant Colonel Hagemeister, a Medal of Honor recipient, which made this an extra cool event for our family!
I just wanted to extend another thank you to our military heroes. They are the reason I can get up and write whatever I want to discuss on this blog. They are the reason I can choose to do whatever I want to do in this lifetime. They are the reason my family lives in a free country. We can all “Be You and Do Something Cool” because we are free.
Much gratitude from the bottom of my heart-yesterday, today and always…THANK YOU ALL!!
