THANK YOU TO ALL VETERANS!


When we moved here to Texas a couple weeks ago, my husband surprised me with a new laptop!  (Yes, ladies, he's my best friend and my sugar daddy! LOL)  All of my Family Heritage pictures are still on my old computer back in Georgia.  I'm wishing so hard right now I had access to those photos to show you some great pictures of our military family through the years.  Maybe I'll update a new post with those when we go back at Thanksgiving to get the rest of our things.

Until then, please enjoy these photos of family and friends who have previously or who are currently serving our country.

Say THANK YOU every chance you get to them.  It means a lot.

And enjoy the video at the end of this post.

  2. This is the best post, Janis! Your family obviously has a long history of partriotism and service, and I am eternally grateful for their bravery and dedication!
    Is James still deployed? I hope he is staying safe and will be able to come home for the holidays again this year.
    I can't believe it's been so long since I checked in on your blog :( I totally missed your big move back to the lower 48.
    Well, I've rambled long enough for one comment - LOL!

We are so proud. Thanks for sharing your family history.
