Memorial Day Tribute: I'm Proud to be An American

Here in America we celebrate the lives and service of those men and women who have served in the armed services of the United States of America. They have given years and lives, arms and legs, and eyes and hearing. They have sacrificed themselves and their families on the altar of freedom. We have the privilege of living in a free country because throughout the decades there have been men and women who have served under the leadership of this free Nation's government to win and contain the freedoms we hold so dear.

Military from my family: Great-grandfather Perkins (lost a leg), Great-grandfather Houston, Uncle Bill, Uncle L.H., Uncle Herbert (killed WWII), Father-in-law W.L., Cousin Joe, Brother Herb, Husband Jack, Son-in-law Shane.
