Thanks For Your Service

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

We have just finished hosting six members of America’s armed forces, and their significant others, as part of the B&B For Vets program.   We decided to donate some rooms to this program because it just seemed the right thing to do – a simple way of showing appreciation to those who serve in our country’s military.  What we learned is that there is a human face to the military and to the wars which seem so far away.
Like many people in America, we are very removed from the military.  We don’t personally know anyone who is in Iraq or Afghanistan, and our families have not been directly affected by those events.  So, the experience of meeting these five couples has given us a different perspective , and a greater appreciation for the professionalism of the modern American military.
