Some Very Special Veterans

On this Veteran's Day, I'd like to take a moment to say Thank You to some very special Veterans in my life:

First of all, my Dad

Fireman 1st Class, H.S. Shuman, who served in the Navy on Okinawa in World War II at the age of 17.

Next, my father-in-law

Wayne Kitchel, Army officer serving in Korea

Next, someone very dear to my heart who gave his life for our country on November 13, 2004 (more posts to follow this week)

Image hosted by
Captain Sean Sims, US Army served in Iraq and Bosnia. Be sure to check out his wife's blog at Learning to Live

Next, someone whom I've gotten to "know" after receiving a memorial bracelet with his name on it

Image hosted by
Master Sgt. Kelly Hornbeck from Fort Worth, TX who gave his life for our country on January 18, 2004 in Iraq

Last, but most definitely not least, my niece's husband who is currently serving a second term in Iraq. Unfortunately, all my photos of Captain Jason Snelgrove, US Army in Iraq, are on the computer that crashed so instead I'll give you a link to his awesome blog, There and Back Again

Have a wonderful Veteran's Day, and say a prayer today for the families of those who gave their lives for your freedom!!

If you are an American Warrior, swing by my blog today too. I want to say thank you.

I love your blog today. That first one is especially close to me too you know. I appreciate all of our veterans and the sacrifices they made. Too many people today aren't willing to lift a finger for our country. How sad.

By the way, you left out the Vietnam Vet that lives in my house.

Keep up the good work girl!

I love your blog today. We owe a great debt to all our veterans - past and present. You know that first one is pretty special to me too.

By the way, you forgot the Vietnam Vet that lives at my house. As he has watched military shows all evening I've been thinking about what he must have been through. I can't imagine! But I'm very grateful.

Keep up the good work sister!
