Today is a day set aside in the United States to honor our veterans. Our own Susan Kaye is a veteran, as is my daughter.My son-in-law was recently promoted to Major, and my daughter (a Navy veteran) was there to participate in his promotion, along with his pup, Rocko.
We are enjoying having them in the States for a few months before they leave for Japan. While we will certainly miss them for those three years, we are very proud of them and their service to our country.
My family has a long history of military service. Gayle and I are direct descendants of men who fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. Our uncles fought in the World Wars, and our relatives were in Korea and Vietnam. Our brothers served in the National Guard and the Army during the Vietnam era.
The ladies of Jane Started It extend our appreciation for the sacrifices of our military, past and present. Tell us about your past service or the veterans in your family.
