A Special Veteran’s Day Note

Veteran’s Day holds a very special place in my heart as my grandpa, father-in-law, and three of my husband’s grandparents proudly served. I am grateful for all veterans, especially my extended family and friends, and I will raise my daughter knowing that importance, too. Our vets can never be thanked enough, but I would like to send out some extra love today to my family – Jessica Much, Dan Moore, and friends Michael Neils, Jim Stordock, Tommy Zimmerman, Josiah Guyant and Mike Thill. Thank you all for your service! – Jennifer
