I have posted this picture before, but, I think it worth posting again. Though it is of the Vietnam Memorial Wall, I think it can be said of all the men and woman that we have lost from every war.
We will NEVER forget!!
God bless all of them, past, present and future. If it weren't for them, we would not be here.

The painting was done by a wonderful artist by the name of Lee Teter who received a standing ovation from over a thousand Vietnam veteran representatitives when he was given the President's Award for the painting.

Thats what Memorial Day is all about. Remembering those that have passed through our lives and gave meaning to us in whatever way.

Bless our Service Personal ...
A service wife of a 21 year Retired Navy Chief who as some of you already know served as a Corpsman (Medic) with the Marines during the Korean and Viet Nam wars. I am thankful each and every day that I still have him with me. He saw more than any one should have.

It is good to have a reminder of how much we should appreciate all of those who put themselves in harm's way for our freedom and to protect our way of life. Many thanks.
