… those who serve or have served, who have suffered injury or lost their lives in the line of duty. On this Memorial Day, thank you for your sacrifices that allow the rest of us to live freely.
Recently I was given a photo of an uncle I never had a chance to know. My father’s brother was killed in action on July 1, 1944 on Saipan Island, while serving in the Army in World War II. I am grateful to own this one photo of him. In the photo are my long-lost uncle at age 12, my dad at age 10, and their sister (my aunt, who passed away last year) at age 7. The photo will be kept as a treasured reminder of family history. Years later, my dad and my husband both served in the military (during the Korean War and Vietnam War eras) but thankfully both returned safely from their tours of duty and are still with me today.
In honor of today’s memorial celebrations and patriotic displays, I hearken back to my very first design, published in a charity newsletter way back in 2004. Here is the Patriotic Mini-Sock Pin if you are in the mood for a little project to work on during this day of remembrance:
Today I am grateful for the freedom to design and publish.
