Poor guy!

My husband is a veteran, too. It's taken a long time to realize that because all my life I've thought of my late father and my late grandfather and late great uncle as veterans and they are all deceased. I married my husband when he was in the services and when he got out, he was referred to as a veteran and it was just so strange. I kept thinking, "He never fired his gun in battle - just in practices."


Heh...the Spouse Thingy served for 20 years and still wrestles with the idea that he's technically a veteran. But he was never shot at, so he figures he was just an "active duty member" now retired...

Danny was in the Air Force, Clovis AFB, New Mexico
Michael (#2 son) served in the Army (2 tours in Germany
Danny's Dad (God Rest His Soul) served 27 years in the Navy
I also served as a US Navy Wave for a short time until I married and was, as they say "with child" (namely Beloved Boyfriend)
Thank-you for Honoring Veterans for the time, the sacrifices, the lonely Holidays and most of all because we did something special. Mom of Beloved Boyfriend
