Happy Memorial Day!!

This post is a salute to all of our wonderful groomsmen who are serving the military.  I feel so blessed to know these people.  We are not living in a generation of drafts - each of these men have chosen to answer a call to serve.  Even at the risk of sounding like a cliché, I have to say that I'm proud to be an American knowing that the United States Military is filled with people like this:

Specialist Neal Cooper, Army.  Neal is an Army combat medic, embedded with A Troop 2-104th CAV, part of the PA National Guard Stryker Unit.  He has been in Iraq since January, 2009.

Gib Coyle, Army.  Gib is a rising senior at West Point (I borrowed this picture from one of his albums on Facebook - it was taken at the 2009 graduation).

Jason Weaver, Coast Guard.  Jason is currently at basic training in Cape May, NJ.  I won't have any pictures of him in uniform until after graduation, so I thought I would use this picture of him playing with one of my parents dogs last November - how adorable!!

Neal, Gib & Jason - thank you from the bottom of my heart.  May God bless you in your service.
