Veterans Day Poem+Flag Cake

What a GREAT Day today is. A day to celebrate Veterans on this Veterans Day. I am so thankful to live in a country so freely as we do in the United States, and for ever grateful to have had so many men and women fall to their death so that I may live so freely, it is a BLESSING for myself and us all. My husband is a Us Army Veteran he served 5 years active duty and 2 years National Guard. I served as a military wife for several years, and let me tell you the wives and husbands are just so precious to me, they sacrifice so much to maintain all on the home front while there love one is away. I did this so often when my hubby served too. It really is hard to be separated from your spouse and to worry about them. I commend all military families!!! I THANK all serving now, and in the past, soilders who have gone to heaven to be with Our Lord as a fallen HERO, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We have so many friends, family members who have served, along with my husband too, grandfathers, cousins, uncles, and brothers. It is so GREAT that OUR country Honor all VETERANS it really is as the song says Land Of The Free And Home Of The Brave. I wanted to share this poem I found with you all,some one like you or I wrote this from their HEART..Please read over it.......let it really sink into what a Veteran is.....
I also wanted to share a flag cake that I have made and shared here on my blog before....ENJOY........... Flag Jello Cake 1 box yellow cake mix(make cake mix according to the package) after cake is cooled poke several holes in it using a fork Take one small package of jello mix and make it according to the box( you may use any flavor, but I used strawberry to go with the stawberries on the theme of my cake) pour liguid jello mixture over cake then place in fridge for a few hours add almost 1 tub of cool whip( depending on how thick you want the cool whip on your cake) add fresh fruit in my case strawberries and blueberries I made in a flag design this time but I usually just add strawberries on top or blueberries any fruit that goes with your jello flavoring would be the best be sure to leave your cake in the fridge keep it cool when not eating:) All this is great cake, hope you enjoy:)YUMMY!!!
