This Veteran's Day - Remember the Cost of War

DadWWII-PS

I and my children are proud members of the Daughter's and Son's of the American Revolution. My family, maternal and paternal, served in every battle since the Revolutionary War up unto the Iraq War.  Some of the mementos I share in this post are a humble reminder of the cost of war and human life.  We must protect our Constitution and our country so that the lives of men and women who have fought are not forgotten.  Honor our Veterans, today and every day.
