Please join me in thanking our service people. Is there someone you knew, or know, that has served their country in a war? Let us know.

My Grandpa was a WWI "doughboy." His son, my Dad, was a Purple Heart recipient in WWII.

I have a cousin and her husband who have served in the marines.

The best man from our wedding was in the Navy, and served through Desert Storm.

My BIL was a Coast Guard.

My other BIL served in the Navy during Vietnam.

We have also had several good friends serve in branches of the military.

My grandfather served in WWI - he lied about his age (at the time he was only 16) so he could serve in the Navy.

My Grandfather (deceased) as in the Spanish American War (Army); my Dad (deceased) was US Army Reserve in WW II (4-F because he was color blind, he was enlisted to build sub-chasers for the US Navy); and both my brothers were in the Navy in Viet Nam.

DH's middle brother was a corpsman in the Army in Viet Nam, and both his Father and Stepfather (bot deceased) were in WW II (the latter earned a Bronze star and was wounded a couple of times).
