Favorite Things Friday

Today is Veteran's Day in the US and so veteran's are my favorite thing today.  We have a few in the family: my three uncles (WWII), my grandfather (WWI), my brother-in-law (career army with several tours in Vietnam), my cousin (reserves), my husband (army), my son (army with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan), and my several of my nephews, not to mention some grandnephews and probably others that I've forgotten.

And I almost forgot to post FTF as well!

Your family has had a lot of involvement with the military. My grandfather was in WW2. It was Remembrance Day here as well and we observed two minutes silence and gave thanks for those who gave up their lives so we can live the life we have today.

Here in Oz it's Remembrance Day. One of my friends is about to do a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
