Memorial day memories


I’ve always looked forward to Memorial Day. I was a Navy brat and we would have the best celebrations with my Dad, and his friends. I loved listening to their stories about the submarine they were assigned to, and all the exciting places they visited. I had strict Military values instilled in me at an early age. I was taught to respect, and give thanks to anyone who served our country.
Ever since 9/11 I have seen many changes in our military, but the one that is nearest to my heart is how we back our Military men and women more than ever. We openly what they do for us by stopping and thanking them for their service. Our country is a safer place because of the sacrifices they have made.
I understand what they have had to give up because It has always been a part of my life from a young Navy brat to a Navy wife, and now a military mom. I have three in the service, my two sons serve our Navy and my daughter is part of the Marines. As a Mother I have had many sleepless nights. My children have served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and my oldest son was a Diplomat working with the North Koreans during their time of aggression. I am very proud of them and it warms my heart when I see a stranger salute them as they walk by.
I’m sure you can see why Romanatic Suspense is my favorite genre to read, and the one I write. The Seals, Special Ops men and our government agents have always fascinated me. I love the intrigue and mystery during a mission and how every move they make affects their family and team.
In my Guardians of Hope series you follow a group of men made up of FBI Agents, Navy Seals and Special Ops working together to track down a ring of gun smugglers and drug manufacturers who threaten our freedom and the safety of our families here at home.acknowledge
