To Honor our America’s Heroes Past & Present

Taken at the D-Day Memorial last year in Bedford, Virginia more pix from our visit here. Another post of interest is A Walk Through East Tennessee Veterans Memorial.

I can’t express how deeply grateful I am to our servicemen/women, past and present. So, it’s with this small token here I share my thanks to thousands…maybe millions of Americans who fought/fight to keep America free.



To every man and woman I know or do not know, thank you for your selfless act of placing Americans before yourself. May God always bless you and yours!

Thanks to all who served!


Now, a special prayer….

Veteran’s Day Prayer

By: Joanna Fuchs

Dear Lord,

Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.



Please…whenever possible tell a Vet how much you appreciate him/her for his/her service to our country. Freedom isn’t free; it comes with a steep price!

May God bless you and yours!

A Salute to our Heroes

I captured this photo on Friday while snapping pictures in downtown Knoxville. My heart swelled with pride to see this man pay tribute to those who gave their lives in service for our country.

To the many (for there are many) men and women who have served past and present in the armed services so I can lay my head down at night in peace….


from the deepest recesses of my heart!
