Memorial Day

I found this on another blog and just had to pass it on! This was found in a Texas newspaper!

"David Thornhill, a US soldier was severely wounded over in the sand box in Iraq. Sgt. Thornhill who lost both of his legs and burned over 56% of his body while serving this country in Iraq. His birthday is next week and his family is putting out a gentle request and reaching out to supporters asking them to send a card or note to inspire him as he continues to spend time in recovery.

He has been in the hospital for over 2 years now. Sending a birthday card will show him how much we love him for what he has sacrificed for his country. His parents are worried about his emotional status and he hardly ever has visitors. Let's help this soldier and send him a lot of cards."

My kids think soldiers are the greatest people on earth and they are thrilled to be able to write to one. I am so thankful for Men and Women like David who have sacrificed so much so we can be free.
