Veterans Day



My mother's family came from Norway only about 100 years ago but my father's family arrived in Beverly MA from England in 1660. And some grandfather, uncle, cousin, brother, husband, son or grandson has served in the military every generation since. The list is too long to name everyone so here's the latest two, our grandsons Nick and Damian.
I hate war but we have to admire the young men and women that are willing to step up to the plate and serve their country. No matter how you feel about the war we owe them our respect, support and gratitude.

I want to thank your grandsons. I too have 2 sons who served. One is out now and one is still serving and is currently deployed. You are so right, no matter how we feel about it, the men and women need our respect, support and gratitude. You said it all. Thanks, I also posted on my daily blog.
