Well said, your family certainly stepped up to the plate to serve and protect our country, and I thank them.

I did a similar post thanking the men on my dad's side of the family.

Have a lovely weekend!

Very impressive - that you know who they all are. You must be a genealogy buff like me.

That is quite the stellar branch of your family tree, Christine! A wonderful legacy, one I hope your son in his current interests appreciates.

I hope we never forget that Freedom isn't Free. How wonderful that you have remembered all of your family that helped preserve our freedoms.

I just spent a lovely hour looking at your blog and wish you every happiness in your new home. Oh my goodness it will take a lot TLC to restore this home to its original beauty. Good luck with it.

Happy Sewing
