Dis event is weawly special for our family as we are a military family. My Daddy hewps wif it too.

I wub my Daddy and the wespect he shows for all people, our country but I especially wub how he wespects his Soldiers. He make me pwoud to be an American. Daddy is sawuting a flag dat was dedictated to the cemetawy from the family of a fallen soldier. He and his fellow soldier just hung it up, adding it to the growing number of flags every year.

Thank you for spending a widdle memorial day time wif me today.

*Editor's Note*
This story was written 3 years ago before Matthew was reborn and before his "Daddy" retired from the Military. We still are a military family now with one retired Veteran, one Army Reserve son and one Marine son. Both our boys have been to Iraq to serve~our Marine has been there twice. We cannot express how grateful we are for their safe return.
