They grew up in a tiny little borough in PA, and I remember as a little girl, hearing the stories of how my Grandmother was the only lady in her town who had a silk banner with 3 stars, hanging in her front window. They hung these so people would know they had someone from the household fighting in the war. The handsome Navy man in the middle, is my Dad, Joe. He was the finest man I will ever know and I miss him dearly.
Anyhow, please take time today to think of friends and loved ones who have served or are still serving, so that we can be free. Attend a parade or a service. Perhaps, just speak their name softly during you're day.
