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!

"We plan, we toil, we suffer – in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol’s eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs."
