Today is the 241st Marine Corps Birthday. Tomorrow, our country remembers all our military veterans. My husband served in the Marine Corps for 26 years, 5 months, and 19 days. I must say, that time was shared by our entire family. Two of our sons followed the tradition to serve in the Corps. But our youngest son, who is now an ordained minister, also shared in the sacrifice of service by sharing his family for the sake of others.
“Follow Your Heart” was the first installment in a series written to honor all military families. It does not matter if the uniformed service member is your husband, father, son, and I must include daughter. When a member of your family takes the oath to serve, we all sacrifice a piece of ourselves.
I hope you will all take a moment to pray for our country, our military, and especially those family members who are left behind. May God Bless you all.
