Military Giveaway!

IMG_2271

So, this isn't part of my Lent giveaway but since I found something on hand that I have to give away next week for Lent I've decided to add this as an additional giveaway...perhaps as a start to the deployment?

Really, the reason I'm giving it away is because I feel like its an excellent book. Gator loves it.

Here are a few of our favorite parts of the book:

Give me an A for Army, and an A for Air Force, too.
An A for all the Armed Services behind the red, white and blue.
They stand at attention, tall and proud, all impeccably dressed.
An A for the American Armed Forces, an A for the world's very best.

Behind each sailor, behind each soldier, somebody somewhere cares.
Behind each airman, coastie, and marines someone is saying their prayers.
Wherever Americans fight for freedom they very quickly learn
F's for the families, first and foremost, who wait for their return.

Not everyone hears it. It's just a few.
But there's no denying it once you do.
When your country calls, you do your part.
So H is for honor in the American heart.

V reminds us of all those who marched these paths before.
Veterans are bound by the gift of service through times of peace and war.
Old and young faces, saluting the flag that waves in the sky above.
All were willing to give their lives for the country that they love.

Y is for the reason they do the things they do.
They put their lives on the line and they do it all for YOU.
For you to live alife that's free in a nation proud and strong,
be glad there are those who go to work taking your dreams along.
