Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Veterans' Day - thanks to each of you

Thank you to my favorite veteran - Army of Dad. Many thanks to all of the other veterans who proudly served our country. Your sacrifices will not be forgotten by any member of my family.

Originally called Armistice Day, this holiday was established to honor Americans who had served in World War I. It falls on November 11, the day when that war ended in 1918, but it now honors veterans of all wars in which the United States has fought, according to a U.S. Embassy website.

Army of Dad and his best friend - now a Staff Sgt. at Fort Collins, Colo., and a veteran of the Iraq War. This was taken in May 1997.

Thank a veteran today for y0ur freedoms - freedom to read a free press, freedom to voice your opinions, freedom to vote, freedom to bear arms and so many more!

    Thanks Jenny. Same to you and yours as well. I never had to endure any time away from AoD, so I was fortunate. Not that it stopped him from volunteering to go to Bosnia, etc. *shaking my head*

    I volunteered for Bosnia twice and Kuwait once.

    Man, I'd think you would remember that!

    Did you at least know about the second time I volunteered for Bosnia?

    I don't remember that. My guess is that you didn't tell me about your subsequent volunteering after my first reaction. Smart boy.
