I saw this here this morning and it struck a chord with me. My Papa was on a ship in Pearl Harbor when it was bombed. He fought. He survived. We live freely because of he fought courageously. My Papa is a man of valor. A brave hero.

My Dad served in the Army National Guard for many years. His training was part of our family. I missed him when he was gone but I was always proud. So proud. Although he never went to war, he prepared. Was ready. Trained others. I am always proud. So proud.

Today I’m remembering. Today I’m reminding my children to remember.

Will you join me in remembering?

PS Come back tomorrow for a give away!! Let's end this May series on a high note!

Of course I will join you. I was just telling a friend of mine that as a child growing up no one ever explained this day to me. It was just a fun family picnic day in the park! It's important that your children know.

Men like your dad and grandfather leave an amazing legacy. Mine have been reading all day about WWII, P-51 Mustangs and these amazing men. Each tribute to a veteran is a blessing. Thanks for sharing your heritage!


Remembering, too.
