happy veteran's day


Happy Veteran's Day!
This guy is my very favorite veteran, my Grandpa. He served in World War 2 under General Patton in Europe.

You may ask yourself why I am including a picture of William and Kate on Veteran's Day. It is because they are wearing poppies. I love the British and Canadian tradition of wearing poppies in support of Veteran's. I believe it is connected to one of my favorite poems, In Flanders Fields.
Thank you to all the Veteran's.
