Tuesday musings . . . and be careful because if you are around on Monday when I am writing, you could wind up the subject of my blog!
Thank You For Your Service

As I write this blog, Memorial Day is coming to a close. I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing day with family and friends and talked about how different this Memorial Day was from the last.


But I cannot close the day without reflecting on those who have served to keep the rest of us safe. Memorial Day is an opportunity to say thank you to those who served.


Generationally, our family patriarchs both served – my father in Korea and Bill’s dad in WWII. My dad, an educator by training, wound up teaching servicemen while stationed abroad. Bill’s dad was a pharmacy mate and survived his ship being torpedoed.


Do you have service in your family tree?

    My dad served in WWII. He produced a fake birth certificate because he was too young to enlist. He wound up being a field photographer in Georgia. Not much action but he was happy he served.

    No one directly in my family. My step-daughter's boyfriend is currently serving in Saudi Arabia after being called up from the reserves.

    Actually, aside from Gayle's Uncle Harold, there were none that I know of. More like a lineage of dodgers (not the baseball kind) from the Czar and my father flunked the physical.
