We salute all the veterans

Very Proud of our Dad
Today we salute all the veterans who bravely and unselfishly
gave their time and often their lives to protect and keep us safe. Our Dad is a veteran - he was a Commander in the Navy for 20 years and flew P3 planes - he loves this country with a passion and was honored to serve. Dad's Dad was also in the military and in keeping with family tradition Dad's nephew is in the Air Force and is currently serving in Italy. To all the veterans currant, past and future - we honor and thank you for your service.

On Mom's side - her Dad was in the second world war and served in the British Army. This is one of the very special memento's Mom has of her Dad and Mom. This postcard was made by a funny little guy at the base of the pyramids - he used a photo of Mom's Mom that Dad carried with him and took of photo of Mom's Dad - combined them with a postcard and came up with this wonderful keepsake. Mom chuckles at this being one of the first versions on photo shopping :)
