On this Veterans Day I wanted to pay homage to and Thank all the members of my family how have served and are serving in the armed forced for our country.

My husband, David, served in the Airforce as an electronic technician during the late 60's and early 70's. We were married when he got back stateside.
My Brother Wayne and his Wife Sharyn both served in the Army during the late 1980's and early 1990's both were sent to the first Gulf War. They married while they were in the Army and were stationed around the world.
