Veterans Day Tribute

 Pages from my paternal grandmother's photo album.   WWI, I believe. 

My maternal grandparents.  Pop pop was in the Navy in WWII.  

My mom is the oldest of her siblings. 
She remembers how hard it was for her mom to be left to raise the family while her dad served. 

I need to scan some pictures of my dad in uniform.  That is for another day. 

But these are some of my favorite of him as a boy celebrating our freedom.

Listen to the stories of the veterans in your family.  
They have a lot to say, even when they use few words.
