Happy Veterans Day 11/11/20

I think of every Veterans day as a time to relive the memories I have had in the U.S Navy. I love to reflect on what I learned, the family I made and the memories that I will always cherish. There were times where I wanted to give up and just get of the Navy, but I pushed through them and became the woman I am today. I am thankful for everyone I have met on this journey so far and I can’t wait to see what’s still in store for me. Seven years down, many more to go! Thank you to all my brothers and sisters who I have had the honor of serving with.

Love ya’ll,

My home for 5 years.

A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace.

Fourth of July Twenty-Twenty

Happy 244th Birthday America. May our Freedom forever ring.

“Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.”

– John Dickinson

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July everyone. Remember fireworks in some states and counties are illegal, also remember we only have one body. So, be careful if you do decide to use them. Being in EMS this is where we see some very painful injuries. COVID-19 is still raging throughout so wear a mask and wash your hands. Enjoy some food and down time. Happy 4th of July America! 🎇

Juneteenth

Keep In your Heart The Blood

Remember always the glory days,
the dances, the songs, the chants, the rituals, the customs,
the people.

Remember times in beautiful Africa, your people.
From green forests, golden deserts, to the deepest, darkest regions
of Congo and Virunga.

Hear, here in this land.

Hear always in your heart the beating of drums,
the ancient customs of the Kagani.

Remember always the kings and queens,
Tutankhamen, Cleopatra.

But do not sit and not remember the dark days.
Keep In Your Heart The Blood.

Blood spilled by those who fought for freedom.
The blood of the slave as the whip touches the flesh.

Do not be enslaved, be now empowered.
Feel it, taste it, drink it.

Gather it in buckets, bathe in it.
Bathe your children in it

Keep In Your Heart The Blood

“Our flag means all that our fathers meant in the Revolutionary War. It means all that the Declaration of Independence meant. It means justice. It means liberty. It means happiness…. Every color means liberty. Every thread means liberty. Every star and stripe means liberty.”

“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay.”

“This country has not seen and probably will never know the true level of sacrifice of our veterans. As a civilian, I owe an unpayable debt to all our military. Going forward let’s not send our servicemen and women off to war or conflict zones unless it is overwhelmingly justifiable and on moral high ground.

– Thomas M. Smith

Military Appreciation

What It Means To Me

The military in all its pride and patriotism sometimes get overlooked or frowned upon. Shocker I know. Over the many years the military have come to be appreciated by Americans and the World. During Veteran’s Day we think about the Veteran’s who have served our country and those continuing to serve and Protect our Freedom. Veteran’s Day is celebrated with parades, discounts from various stores, and camaraderie between all branches. Veteran’s are among us every day in life. They could be your next door neighbor, the Police Officer patrolling the town. They could be the teacher for your child or they could be your classmate. Most people can’t tell a Veteran from a civilian. I mean look at me, unless I told you, you wouldn’t even know. Appreciate those around you, some of them may have fought for your freedom and the freedom of this Country. I volunteered my service and my life willingly for the people of this country. I will continue to do so until I no longer can. I have made friendships, I have lost friends and I have experienced not many people can say they have. Being a Veteran, a female Veteran at that, is an honor and a privilege.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

– Ronald Reagan

Sometimes I think that we have forgotten this as a whole. Quite honestly it breaks my heart because I know what we have fought for, and how hard we have been fighting.
