You’re A Grand Old Flag…

Happy Veteran’s Day everyone!! As my family and I sit home today doing various chores and watching Dr. Phil, I just want to take a minute and thank those who have served and continue to serve our country.
I’m sure many of us have military members in our family tree. Have you thanked them lately??
I know I have be remiss in my gratitude. I get so dang frustrated with our administration, that I forget there are real people attached to those numbers lost in the war. We wouldn’t be blogging here without them. So, whether you are Republican, Democrat or Independent, count your blessings and wave your flag proudly.
Thank you:
Grand pa P. WWII vet-Navy
Grandpa S. Korean vet- Army
Grandpa C. WWII vet- Marines
Dad-Marine Corp vet
Dad-In Law- Army vet
My little Brother- active Marine Corps

  1. Well…although you won’t see me doing anything close to proudly waving an American flag these days….I would like to thank our veterans – the ones in our family and all of the others including these:< HREF="http://www.ivaw.org" REL="nofollow">Iraq Veterans Against the War<>and these:< HREF="http://www.veteransforpeace.org" REL="nofollow">Veterans for Peace<>and especially the very hot Army paratrooper veteran who lives in my house. Yum. Wait, what was I saying? Oh yeah…thank you.Thanks for the reminder, Ker.

  2. My Uncle Bud, killed in action in Korea…My Uncle Pax, My Uncle Pooch, My Great Grandfather James, My Great Uncles, Amos and Volney, My Uncle Jack, My father and my brother thank you Keri for your tribute.

  3. Grandpa B, Grandpa J, Grandma J, Grandpa S in law, all WWII and some in Korea, Uncle Kevin who died during Vietnam, Uncle Mark, Aunt Kathy, Dad, Step mom, and my recovering Marine brother Phillip.Thank you for all you sacraficed. I wish our current military realities provided the same opportunities for a comparable pride in our soldiers mission. Although I do not agree with this war, I have an extraordinary respect for all of our military grandparents, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and children who have committed their lives to their duty. May you all come home soon.

  4. Wonderful tribute, Keri! My mom STILL misses her paratrooper brother who was laid to rest in France during WWII. He was an uncle that I never knew, but am thankful for. AF
