Today is the day we thank all veterans for their service to our country. So many young men and women gave their lives so we could enjoy the freedom we have today.
I want to extend a special thank you to my husband, who served in the Vietnam War and to my father who is a Korean war veteran. As young teens who knew nothing about Washington and politics, they both enlisted to serve their country in whatever capacity they were asked to serve.
These are my husband's combat boots from Vietnam:
He was lucky. He came home. So many others did not.
Today we remember those who gave their young lives so we could be free.
Saying "thank you" is hardly enough.
I want to add these two pics of my Mom & Dad, who attended memorial ceremonies today and put a wreath on the Korean war memorial. Do you see all those white crosses? My Dad and two or three others painted all of them about two weeks ago.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
