Armed Forces Day

Today is Armed Forces Day here in the US, a day to come together to thank and honor those who serve.  This day was first set aside in 1949 to recognize the unification of all branches of our military under the Department of Defense -


- and to acknowledge the extraordinary dedication of America's uniformed patriots standing ready in harm's way, at home and around the world.


To all who have served and are now serving in our US Armed Forces - we appreciate you, we honor you, and we pray for you and your families daily.  And a BIG thank you to our favorite soldier of all time - our dad!!!

Play bows and luv,
Zim and Dave

  11. My biggest heroes are my Dad - who served 26 years in the Army, and my husband, who after doing a stint in the Marines, turned around and joined the Navy. Thank you, everyone!
