On this Veteran’s Day so many come to mind… Family and friends, strangers who have touched my life… those who have served with honor.
My father, Jorma Sr. WWII U.S. Navy, Pacific
My uncle Pentti, WWII U.S. Army Pacific
My Uncle Tarmo WWII U.S. Army North Africa and Italy
Vanessa’s Uncle Bobby, WWII U.S. Army Battle Of The Bulge
Vanessa’s Uncle Milt, WWII U.S. Army Pacific
My Dear friend Chuck F. Vietnam U.S. Marines
My bestest pal Jerry S. Vietnam U.S. Army
John Hurlbut’s dad Ray, WWII U.S.Navy Pacific
Jerry, Chuck and Ray are still with us… the others have fought their last battle and moved on.
These I know, but of course there are countless others and in my own small way, I honor them all!
