Happy Veterans Day


Happy Veterans Day. I'm going to a Veterans Day parade around 10:30 this morning. My daughter is marching in it with her Brownie Troop.

Today I will think of Veterans past and present who have served their country. Including members of my own family. My father was in the Korean War, My husband's father was in WWII, and was a POW. My brother-in-law was in the Vietnam War, My husband was in the Army, luckily in peace time, and my nephew was in the Army and the National Guard. And even my Mother-in-law was a WAC (which is the Woman's Army Corps) in WWII. That was before woman could join the Army. But she voluntarily helped out during WWII.

So I will be thinking of my family members who are Veterans and have served their country. And I will be thinking of people who are serving our Country now.


  1. You must be so proud of your Dad! Our Grampy also served in the Korean War. Today we are remembering and honoring all who have served.

  2. Happy Veterans Day! Thank you for visiting Healthy Moms and for the nice comment!

  3. We too are honoring every one that served. Both Grandpas were in the Korean war. Have fun at the parade!
