This week is Veterans Day and I am proud to say I am the daughter of a WWII veteran who served 18 months in a German prisoner of war camp. My father was a ball turret gunner in a B-17 bomber and was shot down over Germany on a bombing run. His story of survival is amazing. I am also married to an Air Force Vietnam veteran and our son was a corpsman in the Navy. My nephews served in the Marines as well as my son-in-law. I am proud of all of them for their service. In fact, I am proud all of the men and women who serve in our services for they stand on the line to keep us safe from those who wish to harm us. From my family to all of you, Thank you for your service! Happy Veterans Day To You All!!
