In a town nearby, local residents who are serving in the military get special recognition in the Hometown Heroes program. Beautiful banners with the service person’s photo, name and rank are attached to lampposts along the main boulevard. My nephew, Matt, is one of those being honored.
It’s Veterans Day… a good time to shine a light on my dad, who served 22 years in the Navy. To all the veterans, thank you for your service. To all the families of veterans, thank you for your sacrifice of family time while your loved one did their duty to our country. Being a Navy brat, I know the sacrifices that are made.
Here’s my mom and dad when they were newlyweds. Isn’t my dad handsome in his Sailor uniform? I think so!
