There is hardly a place to begin to show our honor and respect to those who have served in our nation’s military over the years.
And special honor to my ‘adopted son’ Richard Thiede, Marine vet, ALS victim, and absolute amazing advocate for ALS awareness. My husband and I were with Richard and his wife, Lasca, in Washington, DC last week for an Annual Charity Reception and Concert (Terry McDermott and the Bonfires) that benefited the Semper Fi Fund and Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins. Amazing event!!! Amazing people. And amazing news to come about a new fund for ALS research. It’s still in the works.

And, of course, thank you to Google, for honoring the men and women who have served their country over the years:

Blessings, love, honor and respect to all veterans today.
