Thank You, Ma’am

I know a lot of veterans. Half of my Facebook friends are veterans, military “brats” (children of veterans), or both. Additionally, several men in my family have served in the United States military: my dad, granddad, step-dad, and dad-in-law (had to keep with the “dad” theme), just to name a few.

But my very most favorite veteran of them all is my Mommy.

Talk about a fierce female!

Here is what her military service taught me:


  • Little women can be scary as hell (she’s five-foot-even)
  • Sometimes life is tough shit and you have to do what you have to do.
  • Being a woman shouldn’t stop you from succeeding, but fighting misogyny is a tough job.
