Today is Memorial Day, and I’d like to take a minute to recognize the brave men and women of the United States Armed Services who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. I know not all of our readers are from the US, but I hope that you will bear with me.
We have two special men in our family who are veterans of two different wars. My grandfather, the Munchkin’s great-grandfather, served in the Army for two years during World War II. He saw heavy combat on Gaudalcanal, and is still going strong at 91 years old. My husband’s father served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier during the tail end of the Korean War. He was shot at as a plane he was in flew over enemy territory.
They served with honor, but our families are the lucky ones. The ones that saw their loved ones return home.
We will never forget those that didn’t make it back.
