My mom, dad, and father-in-law are veterans. Growing up, my siblings and I were taught how important it was to remember those who have served and are serving our country. Besides God's mercy, of course, it is due to the sacrifice of these noble men and women that we have the freedoms we do today.
I have developed an even greater appreciation of this fact as I have gotten to know more of these great people and their families as life has gone on.
Years ago, my siblings and I got together to make a CD of music for my parents as an anniversary gift. Since my parents met in the service and formed a singing group that helped to boost morale for their local troop, we felt it was fitting to add some songs that pertained to that era in their lives. Thus, the song Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy was one that we just had to add to the list!
My brother has an audio engineering degree and worked painstakingly to bring our vision to life; without his hard work and the sacrifices of his wife (who was very pregnant with #6 at the time!) and the amazing work of my sisters with arrangements and figuring out the harmonies, this CD would have never happened, so I do want to give a quick shout out of thanks to them!
And I would certainly be remiss if I didn't mention my deep, deep gratitude for my parents and their influence on my life as well as their dedication to our country!
I truly hope you get a kick out of our version of the song Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy! As I've said in a past blog post, we're not professionals by any stretch! Still, we truly enjoyed the opportunity to sing together again as we had done so much while growing up.
May God pour His blessings up all of our veterans and service men and women! We love you and thank you!!
