Happy Memorial Day: Air Force Cookies

Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  I am blessed enough to not have known anyone who lost their life in the line of duty.  However, now that we live in San Antonio, home to Lackland Air Force Base, we have met several members of the Air Force and Air Force veterans, for whom this day of remembrance strikes a lot closer to home.

One of these Air Force veterans that has become very important to us is our neighbor Dave.  He served in the Air Force for 25 years, and he reached the rank of Colonel.  During that time, he fought in Vietnam, served as a flight instructor, and played a vital role in the bombing of Gaddafi in Libya.  Because he lost several friends and students during his time in the Air Force, I wanted to make him something special to celebrate their lives and their service. 

Also, while I would love for you to think that I have made big leaps and bounds in my photography skills, I have to give a HUGE thank you to my brother-in-law Jeremy for taking the pictures.  He is extremely creative and has the artistic eye that my photography is often lacking.  If you are ever in need of shirts, hit him up at Custom T-shirt Outfitters.

Thank you so much for all of those who have served and are currently serving in our Armed Forces.  We are all blessed to have the life we do because of your sacrifice.

  1. Hi! Love the cookies! I was wondering if you did them free hand or if you used a stencil?
