Veteran Family

On this Veteran's Day, I want to honor the service of the 3 veterans in my immediate family. My father fought in WWII. He was an Aircrewman Aviation Ordnanceman 1st Class and was a tail gunner on TBF Avenger torpedo planes. He was stationed at Henderson Field on Guadalcanal:
 My "little" brother, Andy, served in the Navy for six years after high school:
My stepdad, Hershel, served as a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division in Viet Nam. (These are his feet as he flew through the air during a jump! So perfect, if you know him!)

I am so thankful that they all came home safely and that they & their buddies risked everything for us to be able to live the way we do. Always praying prayers of protection, safety, wisdom, and comfort over those still in active service...
