How many parents can say that their children know what the words Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage mean or that they exhibit these great qualities? Service members children being raised in patriotic families watching their fathers and mother serve in the Armed Forces. Growing up in a military family I was proud to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance placing my hand over my heart and reciting the words from memory. I am just not repeating the words I think of each word and what that word represents I think of the sacrifices of the military families, the loss of loved ones, the pride in being part of something great. I am raising my daughters to know this pride and the freedoms and liberties that come with being an American citizen for it is on the sweat, blood, tears and hard work that our great country was born. One of our greatest tragedies was Sept 11th 2001 a day etched in history for all future generations to learn about. Children of Service members people who serve be military, police, firemen, and rescue workers...people who run into harms way to protect and serve those who are in need those are the children who know and live these qualities below is a photo from our Army Posts Sept 11th remembrance walk these little children walk for the fallen of that horrific day. They understand the fear and loss knowing that their father or mother walks into danger to protect our country.
