Memorial Day

As we celebrate the courage and sacrifices of the men and women of the United States military, I will be remembering my father and his brother, both World War II Army veterans, and my cousin, who served in the Coast Guard. Uncle Bud fought in the China-India-Burma theater, was wounded, and received the Purple Heart. I’ll also be thinking of my Uncle Frank, my mother’s sister’s husband, who died at the Battle of the Bulge. Even though I never knew him, I am grateful for his service and his sacrifice.

I will also be thinking of my brother, who served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War era, and my Uncle Johnny, our family’s last link to those who served in World War II.

I wish you and yours a blessed and peaceful Memorial Day.
