Today I just want to say a big Thank you to all of those Vets out there who have sacrificed so much for me.
This is my Brother-in-Law Ben...Went to Iraq three times.
I'm sure I haven't told him or many veterans thanks enough...Thanks You!!! I'm sad to say that it took a day of remembrance for me to say it. But that isn't to say that I don't think it quite often.
Tonight I Oscar and I worked on some homework about what service men we are related to. It was fun to look back and to see the service men, past and present who have served in our families. This includes my Grandpa Oertli who was a Swiss army member during WW2.
Oscar loved hearing about who they are/were and what branch of service they were in.
Happy Veteran's Day!

it is nice to think about all those in our family that served. I know all about mine but when it comes to Rob's side I don't know a whole lot.
We will have to work on that.

The Swiss had an army?!...
Just kidding. Those brave warriors were all just "normal" folks who got called into service to literally save the world from tyranny. Thanks to all who serve/have served, and our prayers are that they will be safe and that our leaders can make sure that the causes are just. And Letty, thank you for remining us.
