Proud to Be An American!


My Dad

My Father-in-law


I just want to say that I am proud to be an American and may God continue to bless the USA because of our founding fathers and many of us today who still believe in God to answer our prayers and make our life worth living.



My tribute today is to all the men currently serving our country~THANK YOU!! and those who have served. THANK YOU! My cousin Maureen's son, Shane is serving in France today, my cousin, Lyle died at a young age serving his country in Vietnam and is name is on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington and to my dad who served in Korea and Vietnam and my father-in-law, Ray who served in World War II. THANK YOU!!
Thanks to Kat for the great graphic at the top of the post!

Great post! I hope that if anyone went to a cemetery this holiday and saw flags left on gravesites by a family member....or any day that we see a military person in uniform, or the United States flag being flown...that we take a moment to acknowledge the sacrifices that are being made for us each and every day.

Happy Memorial Day!

Great post! Your Dad served in Viet Nam too???? I didn't know that! No wonder you were living everywhere but here for so long.
My Dad served in WWII. I have his uniform! He was a tailgunner in the army.

FInished my hutch. Connie - I am so bloody tired, I cannot tell you. I read Mark your comment about what Dwight would probably have said and he started busting up!

Talk soon! Hugs. Karen
