We remember. . .

flagToday is the day we celebrate the lives of valiant men and women through the ages who served their country and made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of Freedom. Mom tells us that she has had family members die in service to their country as far back as the Civil War (she thinks the Revolutionary War as well, but its too early in the morning to check with Granmama!). 

starflower1 We want to especially remember mom’s uncles:  Philip, Oscar and Claude, Jr. who served during WW2.  Uncle Philip is the only one who remains (he’s in his 90s and is Angel LadyBird’s father). We honor, remember and thank them for their service and sacrifice.starflower1

  1. It is good ta remember the Beins of the past who fought to protect freedoms. TBT tells us there are ancestors who fought all the way back into old England history. Grandad and many uncles of TBT did their parts in WWII.
