Thanks Boys

These are two of our children, Matthew and John Hansen.






They are both helicopter pilots, Matthew with the Army and John with the Navy. On this Veterans Day, we want to make sure they know how much we love them and appreciate all the sacrifices they make on a daily basis to ensure our freedom and security. You both are amazing human beings and we are proud. If we had any idea you two were going to turn out so well, we would have never grounded you for all those cars you totalled when you were teenagers. Anyway, thanks boys. We love you both. We won't say which one more but one of you might want to rethink flying that Chinook so close to the house all the time. I'm just saying.

Brilliant, I'm ex Navy myself so Remembrance Day always hits home gets me emotional.

maybe it was the 'Grounding' that got them in the air in the first place - so maybe they should thank YOU!

just saying..

Great picture! Thank you to them through you for their service!

Thank YOU for having such amazing boys and thank you to them for what they do for our country!

I have to laugh at the grounding thing. My son was a complete knucklehead as a kid, and turned out mature, responsible, and with his own business. Who knew.

God bless Matthew and John for their service to our country.

Helicopter pilots with a history of totalling cars...Aaaaaaaa! No wonder you don't want them buzzing your house.

Many thanks to both for their service.
