Memorial Day

May 28, 2012

Wishing everyone a safe and joyous Memorial Day! William and I took a stroll through the cemetery to pay our respects and take some photos. Both my grandfather, and Wil’s father served in Korea, but didn’t see much, if any action. My grandfather worked State side as a Cryptographer just before the war ended, and later worked as a journalist for the Pentagon. Wil’s dad actually went overseas, but from the stories he tells, I have a feeling he had more fun than anything. I’m trying to gather photos and more information on my ancestors who have served so I can post more about them. I know I have family members who were once in the U.S., British, and Canadian armies. (I keep forgetting Canada has a military. I suppose that’s a good thing!) WWII and the Korean wars are of special interest to me because they happened during my favorite era (I think I’ve watched every documentary Netflix has on these two subjects), but I have a great admiration and respect for all men and women who have served, or still serve, their country.

Hope everyone has enjoyed their long weekend!
