Happy Veterans Day

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Today I give you three very special veterans
My son, my father and my future son-in-law.

Pretty impressive, on a day like today it makes you think more about their passion for fredom.Today when they played taps everyone became misty eyed, and I am sure the salutes were being sent to someone special.My hat off to Applebees offering out free meals to vets today. A local grocery had free breakfast.

I want to thank YOU...for sharing them today....there is nothing as great as a good man who is willing to defend our country! Very handsome men too! ;D

Nice looking group! You have a great collection of guys there!

Those that serve ensure our freedom. Without them freedom would be no more. Bless them one and all.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Beautiful tribute to your three special veterans! Many thanks to them and all those who protect our freedom!

And a good looking crew they are! Your father was one good-looking young man! Look at those sparkling eyes and fabulous smile - a real heart breaker.

Very special, indeed! Very nice collage of these three handsome men in your life. My gratitude and thanks to each of them.

Russ said...

Wonderful picture. Great set of heros you have in your life. As a Vet myself I feel the service men today are getting a raw deal. You are suppose to spend a year there. Some are extended and some go right back.That is pushing fate to the limit.I will be glad when all our service men and women are home.
I won't do any venting. I just want to let them know that our prayers are with them.

Ann said...

out on the prairie I heard that Applebees was doing that, very nice.

julie it was my honor to share them.

sharkbytes can't argue with that :)

sandee amen to that

donna indeed

poetic shutterbug glad you liked it

grace you know I tend to agree but thought my opinion might be a little biased :)

tahtimbo consider it done

allotments4you same here

catherine yes they sure are

donna what a lovely thought

LDH thanks

russ as much as I admire all the young men and women who serve their country I have some opinions on the military that are most likely better left unsaid.

Sandra said...

You are blessed to have these special veterans in your life and thank you for the wonderful and touching collage.

THE OLD GEEZER said...

God bless your veterans and all the others who have served our nation.

Anny said...

Very handsome chaps you have in your family. I am sure you are most proud of them. Have a great weekend Ann.

Shinade said...

I have to agree Ann! they are a good looking set and I send out my special thank you to them and also you and your family.

Our SIL and several nephews are also military. The service all of these men and women do for our country is incredible.

The sacrifices made by them and family are very difficult as you know!!

Thanks for sharing this with us Ann!
Hugs,
Jackie:-)

Shinade said...

I still have no clue how I missed this post either. I think I am loosing my mind. I know I have been taking nap after nap since the clocks turned back.

Oh by the way, on a personal note, thank you Ann for not giving up on me. You are a true and wonderful friend!!

Big hugs!
Jackie:-)

Leeuna said...

Marg said...

A big thank you to your father, your son, and your son in law to be for fighting for our country. We would be in terrible trouble without them. We certainly owe them a huge thanks.
Take care and have a great week end.
