Honoring Veterans


These are the two heroes in my life - my husband and my father. My father is a D-Day survivor. He landed on Omaha Beach with the 29th Division (the one portrayed in the movie "Saving Private Ryan") and spent the rest of the war fighting in Europe. My husband and I were privileged to attend the 55th Anniversary celebration of D-Day in France with my Mom and Dad. It was an unforgettable experience. The people of the little villages they liberated honor the veterans as the heroes they are. They cannot do enough for them to show their gratitude.

My husband served in the Army in Vietnam. It was a different time and a vastly different war, but he went with the same attitude and commitment that my Dad did. They both wanted to serve and protect the country they love.

They, and all those who have served and are serving, have my deepest respect and gratitude.

Blessings,
Linda

Words cannot express my deepest gratitude and respect for the men such as your father and wonderful husband. They are true heros...in every sense of the word.

It is because of them that we can hold our head high and be proud to say we live in the greatest country in the world, The United States of America!

My Grandfather, my father, and my son have all served, along with many of my cousin's kids, two of which are still over there right now. :)

Thank your dear sweet husband and your father and let them know we are so proud of them!

Great pictures too Linda...you did it! whoo hoo! :) The Beta thing? I wish I knew I might switch if someone can assure me you can still work with html's. That is what is important to me. :) If I could only find out, I wouldn't hesitate to switch!

Good morning Linda...I'm finally catching up on the posts I missed the last couple of days! It was a busy weekend and had no time for the computer!! What a wonderful tribute to your dad and hubby...I can't even imagine the sacrifices these men and women do for us and I thank them from the bottom of my heart! Hugs xox

They have mine too! My hubby is also a Vietnam Vet who served in the Marine Corps.
How wonderful to have the privilege of celebrating the 55th anniversary of D-Day in France. I'm glad to hear the Veterans were honored as they should be.
Freedom is never free! We owe our Vets and Servicemen and women a huge debt of gratitude and our fervent prayers!
