Veteran's Day Pics

If you know me and have read my blog for a while, then you know about my favorite veterans and the best Veteran Day's ever. Rather than write about my trips to Washington DC with my Uncle Bob for his Ia Drang Valley Veteran's reunion, I thought I would just post some of my favorite pictures of the trip(s). It was a tuff decision on which pictures to choose. We took lots of photos and had lots of fun seeing the sights in DC including some great memorial shots, but I thought I would stick to the photos of the Vets. Thanks for laying down your life for your country. And for those vets not pictured - like all my blog buddies - thank you, too.
These two photos were taken in the hospitality suite: Hal Moore and Joe Galloway and Jes.
My Marine cousin Jim, Bruce Crandal and Uncle Bob. Color Guard from Ft. Hood and Jesse.
These photos were taken at the banquet:
Uncle Bob and Aunt Caroline with their buddies. 2nd pic - cousins. Capt. Jeff Donnithore, Uncle Bob, MOH receipiant Ed Freeman, and (now) Major Jim Lively.
This picture is one of my favorites because it has Marine, Air Force, Army and Navy all pictured. Dress blues and new shined shoes...


  1. I never tire of these pics... and thanks for the ones previously unseen!

    I second the thank you for the vets. We live in a wonderful place. While being in Lubbock yesterday we enjoyed the beautiful flags...there was a beautiful high school girl from Seagraves this week that lost her life in a car accident...her mother was the first person to find her in a field...I spent the day yesterday with my beautiful daughter in Lubbock with many many beautiful flags...I am blessed.

  3. Thanks Buck, it was really kind of a lazy post, but time was short.

    Anny, spending time with your beautiful daughter is always time well spent.

  4. Thanks for the vets' photos. Thank them all for me, too. Gotta love 'em! Hugs.....
