|My Brother, Wayne on his first visit home, after Cody was born. He was stationed in Okinawa at the time.|

|Above and Below are items from my Grandpa's tour of service, he was stationed in the Pacific during World War II.|
With things like Purple Hearts and folded flags in the homes of my family, being patriotic and proud to be an American are just what we are. I feel very thankful that my loved ones were willing to serve to keep our country free. If one of my kids decided to serve, of course I would worry about them, but I would also be so proud that they have carried on a proud family tradition.
God Bless Veterans, Our Troops now serving and the grand ol' USA,
