leslierahye's Thankful for those who have Served 2♥13

Good morning! Happy Veteran's Day! This is a day to remember our service men and woman--to thank them for the freedoms we have because of the service THEY gave. Thank you.

Recently for a project at school my son was asked who in his family were veterans. I asked my mom's help in creating a list because I knew the two men pictured here were, and my uncle [most recently]. But there were many in our family that we were leaving out. A few hours later, we had a list--over 20 in our families have served from World War I to present day. OVER 20! It's incredible to me that so many of our family fought hard for this country...almost every branch of service is represented. 
Today I am sharing with you my grandfathers. Without these men, I would not have had my parents and I would not be here. I love and appreciate them very much and miss them every day. For the hop today I created Altered Trading Cards with vintage photos of them in their uniforms--they were very handsome!
