Happy Veterans Day

"This nation shall remain the land of the free because of the brave."

I was looking through old pics the other day and stumbled upon these. They are Veterans Day cards made by 1st graders which were sent over to my husband's unit during their 2008 Iraq tour. I am so thankful that I took some pics of my favorites before I sent them out. 

I am posting them here as my Veterans Day tribute, because they are so genuinely sweet & sincere. Love that about kids! 

When the teacher asked this child why she drew this picture she replied:
"Because if I was far away from my home, seeing a picture of my mom would make me feel better." 
How can you not smile at that?

Happy Veterans Day to all of our brave soldiers out there...
our country wouldn't be the great nation it is without you!
