I would like to say thanks to my father, a Korean war veteran, and to my husband, a Vietnam veteran. It is because of millions like them that we enjoy so many freedoms today.
Today a special honor was bestowed upon my father. He was our county's Veteran of the Year, an award given to someone who has gone above and beyond in service to the VFW.
On the 11th day of the 11th month, at the 11th hour, my Mom and Dad were among VFW members across this great country placing wreaths in rememberance to those who have served. Here they are placing the wreath for the Korean war.
This is my father at the podium, behind the tomb of the unknown soldiers, accepting the award.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
