Happy Veterans Day. To all who served or are serving in the US armed service, "Thank you"!

My Dad and two of his brothers served in World War II. Dad was in the air force, or the army air corps as it was called then. He flew 30 missions over Germany as a navigator bombadeer.

Uncle Art served in the army. He landed in France on D-Day and marched all the way through France to Germany.

Uncle Pete served in a tank. He was deployed in north Africa and Italy.

Here's a newspaper article from when they were away. I can't imagine how worried their parents and siblings must have been.

Unfortunately, Uncle Pete passed away a number of years ago, but I am still privileged to hear Dad and Uncle Art share stories of that time.

Many blessings on Veterans Day to both of you.
