As the daughter & sister of US military veterans, I’m proud to share the news that my publisher, Kensington Publishing, has partnered with Military Spouse as part of the site’s Book Club.

Our military men & women & the families who support them sacrifice much for our freedom and safety. Military Spouse is a website that provides a slew of info, advice, insight & more. It’s a space where they can connect, hear from others in similar situations, and find resources that can help.

To our military spouses, the active duty members & veterans, I say thank you for all you’ve given and continue to give. Your service and commitment are recognized and sincerely appreciated.

To my readers, I ask you to please share the site’s address with any military personnel or family you know. And please, pass along my thanks to them.

Veteran's Day, Every Day

Today is a special day.

A stop-and-contemplate-the-sacrifices-others-have-made-for-you day.

If you aren’t aware of it: Today is Veteran’s Day.

The day we remember those who served our country and those who continue to do so.

The day we should take a moment to thank a veteran.

The day that, as Americans, we need to recognize the sacrifices others have made so that we can do things like:

run into Target for some cool new gizmo we probably don’t need but want,

swing by the mall for an outfit that, as a woman, I might not be able to wear
in another country,

stand on the side of the road waving a sign proclaiming our candidate of
choice,

gather in front of our President’s residence and voice our opinion,

send our daughter’s to school knowing they won’t be persecuted for it!

The thing is, I think every day should be celebrated like it’s Veteran’s Day. Every time we see a veteran we should stop and thank him or her.

I grew up as a Navy “brat.” Was an Air Force wife for over two decades. Prayed for and continue to pray for active duty family members.

So I ask all of you, wherever you are, when you see a military member, please make a point of letting him or her know you appreciate their service. Whether or not you agree with a specific military operation isn’t the point. The point is that American men and women fought, served, died so that you and I can live as freely as we do here in the US. Their bravery, their heart, their blood, sweat and tears were given for the rest of us.

Today, everyday, we should be thankful.

So, to

JEANIE and all the other military members in my family, I am beyond proud of you and awed by your bravery.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
