Thanks, Veterans

Hello to all my lovely bead blog buds...friends, idols, family, role models, muses, inspirations...and fellow veterans.

I want to take a minute to say thanks to all of you for your support of my Air Force life as well as thank you for your own service, in whatever good works you're doing. I've been spending a lot of time reading history books, lately, and have come to realize just how lucky I am. I'm part of part of this great 30-something generation that's bridging the operations of the past into the missions of our future.

I'm a big fan of color and design and fun and, again, feel lucky that this creative outlet has helped me become a better problem-solver, thinker, and leader. I may not fly or fight on the front lines, but I do what I can to help out my fellow Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, & Marines from back in the world of cubicles.

Some special thoughts and prayers to...
- The Provincial Reconstruction Teams making progress across Afghanistan
- The Renegades taking care of business in Iraq
- The 82nd Airborne down in southern Afghanistan
- All those Pentagon staffers floating in a sea of Powerpoint

Thanks.

  4. Hi Jenn: This is my first visit to your blog. I'm glad I visited on this day. Today I received an email from a friend who served in Viet Nam. In his email he said how hard Veterans Day was for him and that over the course of his life, he's had few vets to talk to about his experiences. He shared a few experiences with me that he said he had never shared with anyone before. I'm glad you honored the memory of our veterans and all those who are actively serving our country ... which means each of us.
