We’re proud of our family member who served in combat. Fortunately, Robby was never wounded during his three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Yes, you might say that we’re a Navy family. We’re definitely proud of all those who have served in whatever capacity. Indeed, the character of Jackson Schilling in my most recent, God’s Banker was crafted from some of these very same men and women who serve our country.
This Thursday in San Pedro harbor aboard the USS Iowa we’ll attend a ceremony hosted by actor, Gary Sinise. I imagine this will be a tear jerker of an event. Even so, we’re going to show support for our men and women who serve and to maybe shake a few hands and offer thanks for what they’ve done for all of us.
