  1. Janie,
    You mentioned on twitter that you had shared my blog, but I didn’t realize until this afternoon when I received your post in my e-mail that you had reblogged it on your blog. Your group of followers is who I want to reach. They too are the heroes! They serve too! And, God Bless the Gold Star Families! Again, thank you dear friend.

  2. Pat,
    Thank you, my friend for all your good work. Your posts are compelling. I love how you keep reaching out and serving our military and their families with important information! Thank you for sharing. Love Janie
