On Veteran’s Day 2017, my husband Kevin (a U.S. Navy Veteran) and I went to the bay front in Downtown St. Augustine to watch the annual Veteran’s Day parade. It was a beautiful display of patriotism and the atmosphere was exhilarating! St. Augustine High’s band and JROTC program was fabulous, and I am so touched and thrilled to see our local youth become involved in something as important as honoring our veterans! My family has served in the military for over 100 years, with my brother Stephen serving in the Navy and his son Ben now serving in the Army! I am so grateful to every single service member for their fight to keep America free, and to their families for the sacrifices they have made to support those who serve! May God bless you and keep you!
With tremendous gratitude,
