MEMORIAL DAY!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

I love my country and those who serve, have served before and those who will serve in the future to protect our country and our freedom!!!


GOD BLESS YOU ALL, FOR YOU ARE ALL HEROES!!!




In our family there have been many brave heroes:





Danny my brother a Marine and my brother Larry a Navy man, both served in Vietnam




My father John an army man during WWII, another Army man was my late brother Richard (Dickie, Deej), a paratrooper enlisted after the Vietnam era, during his tour of duty he made 37 jumps, was stationed in Germany, Alaska, and the Panama Canal

My late father-in-law John was in WWII another Army man and his son, my brother-in-law John Jr, was a Marine who was killed in action at the age of 18 in Vietnam, although I never met him, when his family would speak of him I sensed what a great man he was and what a great loss it was for his family, like so many families who lose a loved one in the service, they are the epitomy of heroism






And let's not forget the females who serve.. My niece Traci a Marine, now a nurse, women have made a big impact in the armed forces and you can't help but be proud of each and everyone!







And we are soon to be adding to the family an AIR FORCE MAN Chris future husband to my niece Hannah!







NO MATTER WHAT BRANCH OUR MEN AND WOMEN WERE ENLISTED, THEY ALL SERVE THE SAME FLAG!!






THANKS TO ALL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN FOR OUR FREEDOM!!






GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!









Now, i'm breaking out the RED, WHITE & BLUE............
