Madonna Nash Writes the Song ‘Don’t Leave’ to Honor Military Wives

Singer/songwriter Madonna Nash was inspired to write the song 'Don't Leave' by a friend who is a military wife. All the wife was asking for, was a little more time with the man she so dearly loves. The song struck a nerve with me because I remember when I was a kid, mom saying the very same thing to my dad before he was deployed to Vietnam. It's the very same thing I envision many military spouses doing all over West Texas, being that we are a big Military town. One last thing, as I watched the video I not only felt her pain but her loneliness as well. Check it out.

Military Families Receiving “Flat Daddy” Cardboard Cutouts [VIDEO]

If you have a child of elementary age you've probably heard of "Flat Stanley". Flat Stanley is a paper cutout that the kids put in the mail and send him off on adventures. He has his pictures taken all over the states or world even and returns with the photos and documentation of his travels. The kids learn of different states or parts of the world from Stanley's adventures. The military has now taken that idea a step further for those families that have a member overseas serving our country.

“They will no longer have to lie in order to help protect us,” said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin in a statement. “The end of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is an important victory not just for equality, but integrity.”

I sure love it when our family comes together to celebrate whatever occasion may be at hand. Good food, lots of love, plenty of laughter and we can guarantee the celebration will move into the silly department in short order. Memorial Day was a great time to be had by all.
