Memorial Day

Here we are as another Memorial Day comes knocking on our door. Memorial Day holds deep significance for us here at Yesteryear Acres.  We are thankful for all the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country and to those men and women who continue to keep us safe. We are grateful to all the families of our military who keep the home fires burning and hold their family members close to their hearts. This week the United States Naval Academy Class of 2011 walked across the podium and simultaneously received their Bachelor of Science degree and their Commissioning as an Officer in the US Navy or US Marine Corps. They are off to serve our country by land, air and sea. My daughter is now just one year away from her Commissioning date.  Tomorrow she heads off to Quantico for Leatherneck where she will train with the Marine Corps. This is an extreme boot camp type training and my thoughts will be with her each and every day.  It will be tough - but she is up for the trials that lie before her. Other midshipman are headed for surface warfare training, aviation training and submarine training. It will be a busy summer for the Naval Academy midshipmen. It brings them one step closer to fulfilling their dreams. With the deepest respect, gratitude, awe, appreciation, and heartfelt admiration - thank you to all that serve. And to my daughter - we love you. YOU CAN DO IT!
