Happy Memorial Day

30/05/2011 § 2 Comments

While today is they day we specifically remember those who have died in service to our country, this morning I’m humbled and thankful for the sacrifices of all servicemen and women.  Today I am thinking of my father (Army), both of my grandfathers (Merchant Marine and Army) and my great uncle (Air Force, Tuskegee Airmen).

I hope you have a wonderful holiday.  Welcome summer!

    Look how handsome your daddy is! My dad’s draft number never got called thankfully, but my grandpa fought in WWII in N. Africa. Also, listening to Sam Cooke from your most recent post now. Ahh…
