Happy Veteran's Day

We have a strong Military history in my family. Three of my Mom's four brothers served in WWII while the fourth was in Korea. (The picture here is her oldest.) Dad was in the Army, my brother served in the Air Force for over 20 years, and I have a whole slew of cousins who have served-- we have been present in every war in the last 75 years and represented every branch multiple times! I guess we're lucky-- Dad lost two cousins in WWII but I think that is our only losses. So, my thanks to the people who served and my love to them all.

(And Happy Birthday to my lovely daughter-- who was due on Halloween but waited until Veteran's day so she could have the days off!)

Of our veterans we have a nurse who was in a MASH unit during the Korean war - and, of course, I pictured her being in the tv show.
