Semper Fidelis! (or...... a belated Veteran's Day post)

I have to say, right here, right now.... that I have a massive  soft spot for soldiers. They are so brave, so loyal..... so awesome.

There really is nothing quite like a soldier.

And because I always cry over happy reunions, I felt the need to share. You have to watch these marines surprising their families. It's awesome.

God bless, y'all!

  1. Very cool post, Treskie.

    I totally cried over that clip of the soldiers coming home. *sniff*

    "Most people live their lives wondering if they made a difference... Marines don't have that problem." LOL. I love Ronald Regan.

    1. Thanks, Amy! Hehe, Me too. Soooooo much. That little girl, "Hi, daddy! Hi daddy! I missed you!" D'aaaaaaaaw.

      I wish RR would come back and be president again. :)

  2. :'-) Those pictures are amazing! <3 I love the one of the daddy having a tea party with his girlie! <3 <3

    1. Thanks! Ohmygosh, I KNOW!! There is nothing quite as cute as a daddy having a tea party with his daughter. :D

  3. Aw, I like the picture of the soldier having tea, that one is so sweet.

    The little girl seeing her daddy again always makes me cry. That is just so cute. "My daddy?"

    Both my grandpas and most of my uncles and some of my cousins have served, so I've a bit of a soft spot for soldiers as well.

  4. Oh, I was crying and forgot to answer your comment.

    Yes, holding my book is VERY surreal. I flip through it and then it will hit me, "I wrote this," and then I will want to dance around the room.

    And don't underestimate your own work. You never know who would like it. *Grin*

    1. I know, that picture with the tea party is one of my favorites. :)

      Oooooooooooh, your family sounds awesome! My cousin is in the marines too, and I find him to be exceedingly cool. But even relations aside, soldiers are epic. :)

      Aw, thankee for the encouragement... haha, I've just decided not to let anyone read my novels, bit awkward. :D

      And oh! Thank you for the follow! *screams delightedly* It made my day! X

  5. Oh yes, I love having all my family in the same house around the holidays. We get packed in very nicely and always have a lot of fun!

    Were you able to get your word count up?

    I hope you have a very nice Thanksgiving!

    So right! Soldiers are amazing!!

    God Bless

  7. I gotta say..... so do I. :) I love all these pictures you posted, but I especially love the one with the marine having tea with the little girl. That is just too precious.

    1. I know! That picture is so adorable, isn't it?
