I think it is perfect that Veterans Day falls on 11-11-11.  I am thankful for all who have served, and those are currently sacrificing so that we can all live peacefully.  It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. 
I miss my two favorite vets…they made such an impact on my life-Arthur Pellegrene & Stanley Kasper…I love you both ❤

  This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. -Elmer Davis

Make SURE you thank the service people around you today of all days!


Happy Memorial Day ♥

Remember those that gave everything so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. †

The story of America’s quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots.  ~Randy Vader

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children. William Harvard

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President of the United States


Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened. Billy Graham

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.  ~Benjamin Disraeli

Better than honor and glory, and History’s iron pen,
Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men.
~Richard Watson Gilder

my Grandfather ♥ Arthur J Pellegrene


A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.  ~Joseph Campbell

We will never forget…
