Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Land of the Free Because of the Brave Blog Hop yesterday. All the ladies on the hop did an excellent job with their projects and about getting great stories about of veterans and the men and women who are serving today.
I really enjoyed being a part of this blog hop, hearing all the great stories and the interviews was awesome!
So without further ado:
I had 48 comments and random.org drew #37.....
The winner of Christmas Village is:
I love your card! Very inspiring! I grew up with a Marine, my mom. She was a single parent, and ran our home like a Mini Bootcamp. At the time it was rough, but I learned a lot from it. I think it kept me on track, and out of trouble, unlike so many of the kids around me. My brother, the only male in the house, went on to join the Marines after High School. Now I am married to a Navy man, and my Brother-in-law is currently serving in Iraq. It is his third tour since 9-11. He, like so many others, has a wife and 2 children here at home. I think growing up with military I learned to appreciate my freedom. I still stand and place my hand over my heart and say the Pledge of Allegience. My daughter knew it by heart before she ever stepped into a school. My son (who is 4 1/2) is still learning it. Hearing the Star Spangled Banner, and God Bless America, still give me chills. And I pray that that will NEVER change. Thanks for hopping along with us! Gina GRKIDDO at Verizon.net
