Memorial Day Tribute


Memorial Day is a time for us Americans to take a moment and reflect on the sacrifice and honor shown by our men and women in military uniform ~ this day is for ALL who served this great country. 

Memorial Day strives to stir the patriotic sentiments of every American citizen and remind us that we owe our freedom and liberty to the finest of young men and women who laid down their lives for us ~ they paid the extreme price for the freedom we enjoy today. 

Here’s the love of my life and my favorite veteran, Bill:


Home from basic training as a Private ~ 1965




Bamberg, Germany ~ early 1967 ~ Sergeant

Instructor at 1st Engineering Training Brigade
Ft. Leonard Wood, MO
fall of 1967 ~ Sergeant E5


God Bless all service members and God Bless the U. S. A.!

Have a happy, safe Memorial Day, everyone!

As a Viet Nam vet I thank you for your remarks about the present and former members of our military. I hope you and Bill have a lovely day of rest tomorrow (and maybe some grilling?)
