These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.

  1. I don’t think I’d try messing with him! This is a great thing that you do to promote these heroes 🙂 Love the perspective on the photo too.


    • I have to credit Christopher Lee who started Wednesday Hero. I repost his posts as do a slew of other bloggers. That provides a network of us spreading the word about one person. I’m constantly amazed at the selflessness of these warriors. You may already see it in your bf. I know my kids are pretty outside-oriented, but I’m not eager to have that tested.
