Monday's Music Moves Me ~ Tribute to our Military



(First let me apologize for being late, I had a horrible migraine yesterday and had to go to bed early.)

Welcome to Monday's Music Moves Me the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, Dolly from XmasDolly, Larry from Cakeblast and Callie from Jamerican Spice and this week is Freebie Week!

With all that has happened in the last week, I have been thinking a lot about the men and women who serve in our military and sacrifice daily for our freedoms. Also, I was thinking of those troops yesterday on Mother's Day who were separated from their families. So, today, I want to post some songs in honor of those brave men and women who volunteer to keep us safe.
