Here is my own little tribute to the soldiers in my life...

Thank you to my family mentioned here and to all the other soldiers out there who have served our country and  protected the safety of my family!


  1. Wonderful photos posted on an appropriate day! My dad's younger brother served in WWII and I have a gazillion photos of him from draft day through the end of WWII and beyond. A fine tribute!

  2. Thank you Linda! Every time I look through it, I get a little emotional. :)

  3. Hi Monica,

    I recognized Karl RIenert, who was shot down over Slovakia in June 7, 1944 but Slovaks helped him to escape. Are you related to him? I am interested to know more...
