Veteran's Day


Today I would like to think of all the veterans in my life, past and present.

To my Dad, who retired after 20 years in the U.S. Army. He served in Vietnam the year I turned 10 years old.

To my step-son, who is in the Air Force Reserve, and has served three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. On the home front he is a police officer and the father of four.

To my brother and brothers-in-law, who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Two are Vietnam veterans.

To my neighbor, who is in the Army National Guard and has served in Iraq.

To the husband of a good friend, who is also a Vietnam vet and suffered from PTSD.

To many friends who have been military wives or Army brats, as I was, and can relate.

To my late husband, who was a wounded veteran from the Vietnam war, and served 20 years in the U.S. Army.

To my co-worker, who juggles a full-time job with being a mother and a weekend warrier with the National Guard.

May God bless all of our veterans, and especially the ones in your family and circle of friends.

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
