Memorial Day

Very proud of my family who have protected and are protecting our freedom in the US Military. My Grandfather, PT Corley, served in North Africa during WWII. My Father, Danny Corley, and his older brother Robert served in Vietnam. Then today, Burt Corley just returned from Afghanistan and is a veteran of several theaters of war and conflict since the early 90’s. Chad McCann is currently in Afghanistan with the Louisiana National Guard. Whit Gallaspy has served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and is expected to make another deployment in the near future. If I’m leaving someone out, family, please remind me.

Praying this weekend and always for all of our troops. And not taking for granted the freedom that they have and are providing for my family.

Interesting side note: a relative of mine has found two great, great, great uncles of ours who were injured in the Civil War. She found their application for VA disability in the late 1860’s. They were injured in the battle of Hope Church, which actually was the name of our first church plant :)).
