HOW DID CN SALUTES COME ABOUT?

 

Started as research and a few interviews for my website. It turned out to be so much more than that! I am so in awe of every job in the military no matter how big or small it may seem to those who are serving- it's important.  I knew about my own family's MOS' but I wanted to know more. The military is like a fine tuned machine with everyone doing their part to make it work. The men and women who choose this life have some amazing stories to share. This life is not easy and comes with many sacrifices. One interview, for example, was about my daughter, (Army wife), as her family PCS'd (Permanent Change of Station) from Japan to Fort Hood, Texas. Military families move often and with issues civilians never encounter.

 

CN Salutes is a small way I can pay tribute and just say Thank You.
