Veterans Day

Today is a special day.
A day where we thank those men & women responsible for defending our country. Not just our country but other countries as well.
Today is a day we say Thank you.
So thank you to my dad.
That's him on the left.


That was taken in Vietnam.
Not sure when or where, I don't have the original photo.
His friend is Tony. Thank you Tony.


Here is my dad a few years back.
With his friend & fellow Vietnam Vet, Bob.
Thank you Bob.



On this day, we need to realize that without our veterans & currently active military personell, where would we be????
Take a moment today to thank a Vet or think of someone or just say thanks to former & present military members.
It only takes a minute.

Thank you very much, Meghan's dad and ALL military personnel...including my late grand father who served in WWII.

Thank you for your selfless act of defending our country.

Thank your dad for me.

I think of my grandfather today who served on a Navy ship in WWII in the Pacific. I have another grandfather who served in Europe. I also remember my great-grandfather who served in WWI.

I am also thinking of the soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan and hoping they will stay safe, and be able to get home to their families soon!

Again, please give my appreciation to your father. Not many people can do what he did.

i think about my ex husband this day more and more as the years go by. meghan's grandfather was on the ship the missouri and saw the signing of the treaty of ww2. that was the end of the for him and many others. they went home to their loved one and to a celebration throughout the country. the viet nam vets came home to the love of their families. some did not. but the country never thanked the men as they did in the previous wars.sadly the viet nam war never ended for a lot of our vets. they live it day after day. not only did many lose their lives in viet nam but many came home and lost their lives here. if not right away later in years as they lost their families due to post traumatic stress disease. these men still suffer the effects of the war and there are no words to possibly thank them for what they did so we could remain the country we are today. we need to show our love and appreciation and support to those who have served in the armed forces every day of the year....i know meg's dad reads this and he knows how i feel but here it is again anyway leslie. thank you and i love you.. xxx laura
