In Honor of Those Who Serve - A repost

I wanted to pay tribute to those who are serving or have served in the military for Veteran's Day. Therefore, I am reposting a blog post from Memorial Day. These are pictures of flags and primitives that I have in my own home.

Also, if you haven't submitted a question for me yet (see my Election Day Stories post for more info), please feel free to do so as I'll be answering them later this week!

This is in honor of those who served or are serving, and to those who lost their lives. I would also like to include the families of those who serve as well for their sacrifices!

This first picture is in honor of my father. As the oldest child, it was very moving to receive this flag at his funeral. My father was a veteran of World War II and he served as a medic on the Navy ships. Thank you, Dad (William, Jr.)!

My grandfather served in World War I. Thank you, Grandpa (William, Sr.)!
My children's other grandfather was a veteran of the Korean conflict. Thank you, Rudy!
My daughter's father served in the Vietnam war. Thank you, Rick!
My youngest brother served in the Army during peacetime. Thank you, David!
And my former stepson served in the Navy during the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Thank you, Chris!

I thank you all for your service.

May all of you in blogland have a pleasant time with your families on this holiday, and if your loved ones are away serving this country, I pray they are brought home to you safely!

My husband served in Vietnam too. This was such a wonderful tribute. Thanks!

P.S. Please place your guesses in the Baby Contest. No one is guessing your photo right. I thought your picture looked so much like you though. a lot of people seem to think that it is me.
