A Salute To All Veterans

~Honoring all of our Veterans~
Demilitarized Zone 1968

Giving thanks to all our veterans who are serving and served protecting our wonderful nation, especially my Daddie, and each and every day we are thankful that he returned safetly to our home. My dadddie served in the army at the Joint Security Area in Korea as a Military Police Officer. He served back in the old days when they had the draft and he had no choice about being in the army, he had to go away from my mommie soon after they were married, they had to be seperated for a long time as she couldn't go with him.
 
One night when my daddie had to go on patrol an angel was sitting on his shoulder and his life was spared when a terrible thing happened, four others were not so lucky, they paid the ultimate price while serving their country. To this day our family remembers that day and our hearts are still heavy with sadness for those that were lost that day.


I would hate to see what this country would be like now if there were no armed forces back then and now. It is unfortunate that the fighting is still going on in this world as peace would be so much better but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be near yet.

To all our veterans that have served, are serving, and those now up in heaven I give you all a big THANK YOU!
