Today is Memorial Day, the day we honor those who have served in the military. I honor not only those who were killed during our nation’s wars but also those who have served in the military. Because they are making a sacrafice to keep our nation, us, my family, me safe. So here are the veterans of military service and of past wars that are in my family, both my family and my husbands family.
Currently Serving: My husband has a nephew, Robbie Stanard, currently serving in the Navy who is stationed in Virgina. May God keep you safe and bring you back home soon Robbie!! We love you and miss you!
Past Service: My brother has served in the Marines. I remember when he went to boot camp, I was only 9 years old when he joined the Marines. I love you Albert!
Korea War: My Uncle Benny was in the Army and served in the Korean War. I recently ran into my cousin, one of his sons and he had a lot of pictures of my Uncle Benny in the military. Here are a few of my favorites:
World War II – I have written previously about my Uncle Charlie and how he lied about his age to join the military. You can read that here. I don’t have too many pictures of him, but the ones I do have I love!
This is all that I know of who has served in a war or has served in the military.
