    1. Kathy, When we went to the WWII memorial, there was a place where you could look up where your love one died and was buried. Ted was named after his uncle who was killed at 19 in Italy. This was an interesting memorial. Bless you, xoxo, Susie

    1. Nonnie, When Ted and I went to D.C. we saw all the memorials. Some at dark. MY camera was really acting up them...so I lost many photos. I was amazed at the Korean memorial..the faces looks so real. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Oh Yes! Oh Yes!

    We need to Remember and Thank.

    Especially when our present government, doesn't give a damn. Look at how Veterans are taken care of... Look at how our military is at such a low. Look at his "Apology Tour"!

    I'm just a Citizen. But... I Remember. I Thank.

  11. Susie, I hope you had a nice Memorial Day. You know, my brother-in-law was in the Vietnam war, and his mother couldn't sleep until he returned home safe.

    I think they had a ceremony at our cemetery also.

    love, ~Sheri

  12. The photos really make an impression. You think of all the loved ones who are missing their family member. My mom's dad was killed in WWII, leaving her an orphan at age 13.

    1. Mildred, I know my real father was in the army when it was WWII times..but I do not know where he went or was stationed. He lived to be 88 years old. Sad that your grandfather died so young, and your mom no longer had her father. When I saw Arlington cemetery, I truly had no idea just how many were buried there. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
