    So very proud of my veteran husband, veteran uncles, and all our service men and women who serve and have served.

    I am a proud army wife. My hubby has served for 16+ years and is currently deployed (for the third year-long deployment) with the 82nd. I was hoping I would see pictures of him when WRAL was there, but no such luck. Thanks for the blog--it helps me take my mind off of the deployment, and find great deals for my family.---My husband is STOCKED on hygiene items for his whole deployment :) My nephew also serves in the Army.

    Thank you just doesn't seem like it's enough for all that these amazing people do for us. But that is what we have...our thanks, love and support. I just can't put into words how grateful I am for each and every one of you who serve(d).

    You all inspire me beyond words! My most sincere thanks to all of you! You have simply no idea how much I appreciate our service members and families.

    My dear Mom, first generation born in the US after her mother came through Ellis Island from Hungary, alone, at age 16, used to tell me every year growing up as we stood and watched the Veterans Day Parades, "They're the real heroes in the world" and she said it with her eyes glistening. Her brothers served, my Dad served but I learned early on who do admire because of her.

    She was right, she was ALWAYS right!

    Being a mom of a child in the military, I can truly say that I am grateful for every man and woman that has served in the past, serving now, and will serve in the future. Many thanks to all of you who help to protect this great nation, the United States of America, and the people therein. I also want to tell my daughter, a US Marine, who is currently on duty this very Veterans Day at Camp Lejeune. I love you, I'm so very proud of you, and I hope you have a great day doing that which you love, serving your country. Mom
