Thank You to all Veterans

Great Great Grandfather
Andrew Gross, 
who served in the Civil War

Joseph Brown
Great Great Grandfather who 
served in the Civil War, Union
His father, Gamlin Weeks died in
Cassville Missouri 
while serving, he was one of the oldest that
is known to have enlisted in the Union Army.

My husband, Jerry, who served 4 years during the Vietnam era
He was never shipped to Vietnam, as his skills were needed elsewhere. 

Not a relative, but 
one of my Great Great Grandfather's
commanding officers, and one who helped get a pension 
for my Great Great Grandmother, after 
GGGrandfather's death.

I could go on and on, clear back to the Revolutionary War
and up until today, of the young men in my family who have served honorably in the US military.
For helping free us 
and keeping us free.
