The Month of Thanksgiving – Day 11

Daddy in Belgium, World War II

Poppy, World War I
Today we give a most hearty thanks for the service of our husbands, cousins, uncles, father and grandfathers in the Armed Forces. During World War II, our father, his two brothers, his brother-in-law and several beloved cousins were in the Armed Forces. We often wonder how this close-knit farming community coped. Day-to-day work on the farm had to be very difficult with a whole generation gone off to war. We imagine our Grandmother Lena placing service stars in the windows of the farm house; imagine both she and Poppy Ray growing older with worry…Please thank the veterans for the sacrifices they and their families have made. Say Thank You to the veterans in your life today!
