Thank you for Your Service -Postcard Friendship Friday #332

My sister Clytie has done a lot of study in the genealogy of our family.  She has discovered through both sides of our family, every generation of our family has fought for our freedom in one way or another.  Their stories of loyalty, honesty and integrity touches my heart.  Recently at a family reunion, I saw first-hand the helmet and uniform of one of our relatives who fought in WW1.  It was a poignant moment.

Today in America, we honor our brave Veterans.  I remember my Dad thoughtfully telling me that the one thing which kept him going through those months as a prisoner of war in Nazi Germany, was the knowledge he fought for family, country and flag--and for Freedom.  He could not stand the thought of anyone being oppressed and fought for the freedom of others as well.

God bless all of our veterans--those brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for their country, family and freedom.

May God bless you this Holiday season, dear Friends.  I can't believe how close Christmas is...where did the time go?  :D

Hi, Beth, a bit late but here is Amsterdam to join PFF. Thanks to people like your grandfather we can now live in peace in Europe. I salute these veterans like you. I hope you're doing well and next week I'll join in earlier. Greetings from Amsterdam, Bob
