My Favorite Veteran...

Thank you.

For leaving behind the love of your life...

Your namesake and your precious daughter, my mom.

You chose to trade it all in for our freedom.

You along with countless other veterans, traded warm and happy homes filled with love for cold and lonely, sleepless nights. With snow up to your ears and holes in your boots, you laid down your lives for us. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

God, I give thanks to You, for the life and character of my Grandfather Con Mims, Jr. Thank you for all the veterans that have laid down their lives for our freedom.

In His Dust,
