Can I tell you how much I really do love this land? I love the freedoms that I enjoy, simply because I was born in the US. I love spending the 4th of July surrounded my members of the military. Laying their life on the line every day, to preserve those freedoms. Doing what they do because of a sense of patriotism and duty.My thoughts drifted to my soldier. Far away from us. Far away from the main land. Trying to help a country that is in desperate need of our help. And he goes. Because of a sense of duty and country. Because he wants those children to have the same kind of life that his kids have. Even though our country is suffering with the economy, with natural disasters and more, I am proud. I am proud to be an American. I am proud to be a Navy wife. I am proud to be numbered with the military community. Happy Fourth of July everyone!
