In Honor of Veterans Day 2010

"We have enjoyed so much freedom for so long that we are perhaps in danger of forgetting how much blood it cost..."  ~Felix Frankfurter 

 In honor of two important Veterans in my life; my dad, Gary and and my father-in-law, David.
Thank you both for your service to the United States of America.

 This picture was taken the day my dad reported for his draft notice - he was 19.

 He was a tank driver.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily
earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. ~Author unknown

Unfortunately, I could not get pictures of David while he was in service.  
Although, I had this picture of David, which I can't help but wonder how close in
time it was to when he served.

Dad, David, Uncle Carroll, and Uncle Jimmy -
Thank you for serving.
Honoring you this Veterans Day 2010.
