• Honoring Fallen Texan Heroes Of The U.S. Military

    I received an invitation from @Homefronthugs (one of my Twitter friends) to adopt a military family, a family who waits here at home while a loved one is away serving this country.  I absolutely wanted to do it, but I was concerned. What if I forgot to send the monthy care package? What if I let my family down in some way? What if my family members lost their loved one?

    And then Glenys and R.D. Mathis sent me the following video of what artist Ken Pridgeon of Baytown, Texas has spent the last few years doing for the families of Texas’ fallen warriors, and I was ashamed of worrying about a monthly care package.

    If you never watch another, I hope you will give a minute or so to this video. I promise you that it will touch your heart.

    If you would like to adopt a military family who waits here at home, I have listed contact information below.

    About Fredda Jones

Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
