FOR THOSE WHO ARE GREAT AMERICANS IN OUR ARM FORCES

With Memorial Day right around the corner, I want to say ‘Thank You’ to all the brave men and women – past and present – who have sacrificed and served our great nation – ‘Thank You’  for a job well done!

My Dad served honorably  for 4 years in the US Merchant Marines during World War II.    Thanks Dad!

    Hi Dad –

    That was a nice thing for you to do, to recognize your Dad’s service. I certainly didn’t know he was in the military. You’ll have to tell me some of his war stories sometimes.

    Thanks for alerting me about this post.

    Love –
    Monica
