Veterans Day More Than Just A Holiday!
November 12, 2017 9:56am CST
Yesterday was Veterans Day and as I think about it I remember my dad and his brothers. I remember the fight to keep the world safe and secure. The picture is of the class my father was in that deployed into the Pacific during WWII. It reminds me that when evil wants to take hold good people must stand up. I have a nephew who recently gained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) who has served in several over seas locations. His step dad ( my brother In Law) also is a retired military officer who served in both Iraq Wars. Several Cousins, Nephews and other family members also have served or are presently serving. I am constantly reminded that their sacrifice is what keeps America Safe. Who do you know who has served or is serving? Remember to honor them daily and not just on Veterans Day.

The photo collage is a beautiful memorial tribute to your father and his Navy service! I have a couple of veterans in my family. Two of my husband's uncles served in WW2 and one served in Korea. We know many friends who served too. I agree that we should honor all of our veterans and and appreciate the freedoms we enjoy due to their years of service!

Hey, an RM! I worked with some RMs on temporary duty, it softened my opinion of them (one of my CCs in boot camp was an RM, and that put a bad taste for RMs in my mouth.) My brother, my uncle (mom's brother), and I were in the Navy. My mom had an uncle who was killed in WW II. My two uncles on my dad's side were both Army.
