Memorial Weekend 2014

My grandpa enlisted in the Army at the age of 17 and served at the front during WWI.  His six sons were all military men, Army, Navy, or Marines.  The three Marines, 18, 19, and 21 were in the Korean Conflict at the same time, in the same general location, and under miserable conditions.  All seven returned home intact in body and went on to raise families of their own.  Many of my cousins have also served with honor in the military and none have been lost to war — cause for much thankfulness as we remember all those who have been.

    Thank you for honoring your family’s servicemembers with this post. I am so grateful to all our men and women who have served in our military. We will honor the fallen at Fort Logan National Cemetery this weekend.

      Thank you, Sammy, for reading and commenting on my post. I read yours — Honoring the Fallen — and was very touched by it. We’re losing our WWII and Korean veterans so quickly. I also read your “About” page and completely identify with your statement “I am a Boomer with humor; I’d like to share it with you. My topics vary with my mood and my ability to transfer the whirls and swirls in my head to the posts that you read. I look forward to getting to know you, and learning from you.” Come back any time!
