Happy 233rd Birthday!!!

Navy Birthday Ball 2008...
This past weekend, my husband and I helped celebrate the 233rd birthday of our beloved US Navy! What a birthday party it was! It was held at the Hard Rock Hotel here in Las Vegas and was attended by active duty, reservists, retirees, family, friends, and even the #1 in the Nation Centennial HS Navy JROTC unarmed and armed drill teams! It was awesome, as it always is. We celebrated the service of our fellow sailors, as well as all other members of every branch of service. Tears flowed as always, as we remembered those who have fallen, those who were currently away from their families in service of our country, and as we celebrated the return of those who have recently come home from long absences.
The next time you see a member of our armed forces, please remember to thank them for all they do!!!

Oh, wow, Heather. It is so awesome that you were able to go and enjoy that ball! I tell every service man that I meet "thank you" for all he or she does for our country, no matter how small. I know how you feel and I am so proud to be the mother of one who is so passionate about this great country we live in.
