Have You Said Thank You Today?


Not only am I the wife of a veteran police officer, but I am the mother of two sons, one in the U.S. Army and one in the U.S. Marine Corps. My entire family has dedicated their lives to serving this wonderful country of ours. No matter what your thoughts are about these United States, you cannot deny the very foundation on which it was built. Our history books outline in detail the efforts in building such a Nation. The blood of our forefathers and fellow Americans was shed to make this a great country. Whether you disagree with the current “politics” or not, won’t you take a moment to thank God for these wonderful servants? Without them, our country would be in chaos!

Thank you, John, for protecting the streets of this city we have lived in for 22 years. Your eyes have seen more in one month than I shall ever see in a lifetime. Thank you to all you who serve in law enforcement! I am grateful to be able to walk the streets in a free country because you have worked hard to maintain law and order on those streets.

Thank you, Aaron, for serving in the U.S. Army. Although your adventure is just beginning, you are following in the footsteps of many, my father included. My father, Master Sgt. E. Beaulieu, served in WWII in Italy against Benito Mussolini. You, my son, walk in my Dad’s memory.

Thank you, PFC Nicholas Cardot, for serving our country! My prayers are with you. Thank you to Sgt. Steve Woods for working hard to recruit those in our area who will stand in defense for what we believe!

Thank you, Adam, for serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. I do not fear what man can do to you, or your brother, because you know the God of Glory.

Thank you, PFC T. Glaze for serving in the sand pit! Thank you, SSgt. Farrell for recruiting those in our area to join the Corps and learn to be Semper Fidelis.

Thank you, TSgt D. Plourde, for serving in the U.S. Air Force for so many years. Although you have had many years abroad as well as in the States, you have made the Air Force your home and career.

Thank you!

Thank you to all those who are in the U.S. Navy and protecting our home land. I know quite a few who are now and have been in the Navy but because I did not know their rank, I did not want to list their names.

So many men and women have dedicated their lives – whether for four years or twenty – each deserves our prayers and our gratitude. Without them, our country would open its gates to attack and anarchy. Just watch the evening news and you will see what it is like to live in a third world country like Iraq. Get on bended knee and thank God above for allowing us the awesome privilege of living in a free country!

Stand up and put your hand over your heart when you hear our National Anthem. Wear your flag pin boldly on your lapel without compromise. Recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the great Red, White, and Blue! Many have died defending her. Don’t trample on their memory by being complacent or allowing the liberals of the land to slowly take away our rights and freedoms. Where have the patriotic Americans of yester-year gone?

My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside let freedom ring!

    Thanks Kate! Thank you and your husband for all of the wonderful support and prayers. Soldiers don’t want pity or sorrow. But we love to hear the words “Thank You” once in a while. Those words are sweeter than sugar. So thank you very much for the kindness and support.
