Memorial Day 2012

Memorial Day is the remembrance of those men and women who have served in the Armed Services and have fallen for the United States. My father was in the Army and both my brothers served in the Navy. I don't think any of them saw war fronts, although my father almost did end up in Vietnam during the war but his orders were changed and we ended up in Germany.

I'm sure I know some families who have had soldiers give their life for our country but at this moment, I can't think of any.

On this Memorial Day, I ask you all to remember all those brave men and women who chose to serve in a branch of the military and defend our country. Prayers go to all those actively serving and their families and hoping they return safely.

Thanks for stopping by, Susanne. I feel my posts are getting shorter and shorter since I'm running out of ideas. I need to find some things to post about since I'm about to announce a giveaway extravaganza Thursday. Stay tuned - E :)
