Thank you to our Veterans!


 Veterans Day – Nov. 11, 2015 – is a day set aside to honor those who have served their country. It traces its roots back to World War I when it was known as Armistice Day.

Only here today and we would like to thank all the veterans - men ad women - who served our country past and present.  Many men in our family have fought for our freedom.  Within our immediate family, Pop was in Vietnam and Grandpop in World War II.  We salute all vets today!

 "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." —Elmer Davis

Pop is the one on the right with short sleeves
"Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause." 
- Abraham Lincoln

Grandpop Sam during WWII
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation." – George Washington
