Like so many others have on Veterans Day, Trisha Yearwood is using social media to send a heartfelt thank you to veterans. The country music and Food Network star posted a tribute to servicemen and women on her Instagram account. She attached a short family video along with the post.
“Veterans Day…honoring all who have served our country in wartime and peacetime,” she writes. “Thank you for your service, and thank you to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. God bless you and your families. That’s my sister Beth, at 3-years-old, saluting my Uncle Wilson as he left for base camp in 1964, the year I was born.”
She includes the hashtags #VeteransDay and #BlessOurTroops along with the Instagram post.
