To all those who served…

To all those who served our country, THANK YOU. You gave time and, in some cases, your life to ensure our country remains string and free. You’ve faced horrors that some of us can’t even conceive of. Without you, we couldn’t continue to live free. For that, we owe you and, for that, I thank you.

In honor and in memory of all those I know who have served…my dad; my FIL, Sigifredo Cruz-Vega; my grandfather, Martin Iverson; Monica Mingo; Erica Bunker; Adam Credle; Suzy‘s dad, both of her grandfathers, her uncle, her FIL, and her husband’s cousin; Mrs. Gamgee‘s grandfather; Quiet Dreams‘ dad; and all others.

Please add any names you would like recognized in the comments.  I will add them.

    Love that picture!

    My Dad served, both grandfathers served, my uncle served, my father-in-law served, and Ike’s cousin is currently serving. Wow, that’s a lot!

    My grandfather served in WWII. His story is one that I would love to turn into a novel sometime. He was an ambulance driver in France, and was on Juno beach on D-day.

    My dad served, and because of growing up in a military town, I know many, many, many vets.
