Remembering, A Moment of Silence

Those who served so I could live free. Thank you.

Thanks especially to my father, Joseph. Served in WW2 in the Canadian Navy. Gone now, but not forgotten.

If you post here, please try to remain non political. This is for remembrance only.

Both my grandfathers saw service. one came home.
My Grandmother who was an Army nurse and remained a shadow of the person she would have been otherwise.
My grandfather, whose farm kept many fed who would otherwise have gone hungry in WW2.

Thanks Alix

Thank you to:

My grandfather who served in WWI
My father who served in WWII
Our son, Chris, a Marine during Desert Storm
Our son, Ryan, who served aboard the Eisenhower
To all those who served in the past and those who serve now!

Without all the brave service people we wouldn't have the freedom to make posts such as this.

God Bless America!

Thank you to all who have served. My Uncle Bob served in Korea. My nephew Justin served two times in Iraq where he nearly lost his arm.

Remembering several uncles - some who survived, some who didn't and also a dear friend of my dad's who put his business in my dad's name so he wouldn't have to go to war and he went instead. My dad had 2 little girls, one was me.
