Memorial Day was originally designated to honor those who gave their lives in service to their country. Last Thursday my wife and I traveled to Ada, Oklahoma to take care of some family business. It also gave me the opportunity to honor past generations of the family. I do hope you take time to honor your past as you enjoy your time with family and friends this holiday.
I represent the fourth generation of my family that have served our country. I was in the Army and served in Viet Nam in 1967-68. While all of us would probably tell you that it was an honor and a privilege to serve our country during a time of conflict, we would also tell you we wish that it hadn't been necessary. Peace to you and yours this holiday.
Nice post. My father was killed in Vietnam War. I was wondering if you could follow my blog??ReplyDelete
Nice post my friend. Great pics as always. Gonna kind of be said not to have Neb and OU in the same conference any more.ReplyDelete
I also wish such service had not been necessary. Since it was, and since it still is, I honor all who made the ultimate sacrifice. I wish for those who served the peace that they earned. And I offer those who continue to serve and who will serve in the future my humble thanks.ReplyDelete
Great tribute to your loved ones Driller. My mother, her 12 brothers and sisters, her parents, and some of my cousins are buried near each other at a small cemetery in Dubois, Idaho. It feels like a family reunion when I visit.ReplyDelete
