This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Thank You....

Thank you Dad for being a Marine. 
Thank you for fighting so bravely for our country.
Thank you for surviving Tarawa. 
Thank you for the courage it had to take to live with such hellish memories.

Thank you for all the men and women I did not know who fought along side you, or on different soil for the same cause of Freedom. 
Thank you to all the women and men who gave their lives so we can live the way we live. 
Thank you to my Grandmother who was an Army nurse. 
Thank you to my Grandfather, who was a Marine pilot. 
Thank you to my brother who served with the 82nd Airborne and fought in Granada. 
Thank you to our family friend who is a Marine pilot who taught many, many pilots to fly safe and strong.  God Bless you all.  God Bless America.
