Veterans Day 2011

Today is Veterans Day in the United States~ a day to honor and thank all who are or have been in the armed forces, who daily guard American freedom. 

The 2 Spies grew up in an area that had a high concentration of military~ Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force bases and posts made up our neighborhoods. There were many veterans in both our families and today we would like to honor them and the many others who gave their time, health and lives to give us a marvelously free country to grow up in. For this we will always be eternally grateful.

Husband's Father~ United States Army ~ WWI~ Battle of Argonne France

Husband's Uncle (after whom he was named)~ United States Army~ WWII~ Battle of the Bulge (died there)

My Husband~ United States Army~ Korea

Much appreciation to these men and to our many close friends who served and are still serving.

Please, share the names of your family members who served~ no matter what country~ that we may honor them also.
