If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
with just my children and my wife,
I'd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today,
Cause the flag still stands for freedom
and they can't take that away.

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And, I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me.
And I'll gladly stand up!,
next to you
and defend her still today.
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land...

God Bless the U.S.A.!

From the lakes of Minnesota
to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas
from sea to shining sea,
from Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.,
There's pride in every American heart
and it's time we stand and say:

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
who gave that right to me.
And, I'll gladly stand up !,
next to you
and defend her still today.
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land...
God Bless the U.S.A!!

For those who fought, and those who died. For those who served, and those who tried. To fight for freedom, and show their pride. Thank you!

The above individuals are my Grandpa, Dad, and Uncle. They sadly are not with us anymore. My Dad retired from the Army, he got his retirement with the Army National Guard.

The above individuals are my Mom, Uncle, Aunt, and older brother.

The last of course is my husband and me. Ken of course has been deployed several times in the past. His last deployment was in Iraq. For those of you who seen Mail Call "Live From the Gulf" on the History channel, yes that was Ken for the EOD segment.

I wish I could put everyone on this page that has served in my family. It is too many. So, I just did the ones closest to me.

  

I am slightly biased to the USAF!
