Being with a horse is a journey that never ends. What they have to teach us is amazing; but we must quiet our mind to hear them. ~ jca

Veteran's Day

November 11, Veteran's Day.......a time to remember those who have served our country so that we may be free. To those who have served in past wars and are serving now, I thank you all and God bless you!!!

This is for my brother who served his country in the Marine Corps in 1954 and my husband who served in the Marine Corps in 1968 in Vietnam.
My brother in his dress blues, I always loved this picture, he was my hero.............16 years older than me, my big brother.
On board a ship.
Yes, that's me in my little bare feet in our front yard, Rod was home on leave and I loved being with him.

This is me again, what a hairdo, huh? This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of us; he with his medals on his chest and me with my stuffed kitty. I took that cat everywhere with me!
Sadly I lost my big brother last year..........I miss you!
your little sister

Jane,

A sweet memory of your brother put a knot in my throat.

My son-in-love fought in Iraq. I left a message to thank him on his cell phone today.
