Remembrance Day






Hello my Darlins,

I hope you are well. It has been a sad time here with that incident at Ft Hood and just breaks my heart that such acts occur. You already have enough to worry about and do not need to worry about home. Well, I am sure our top leaders will make changes to ensure there's no repeat.

Remembrance Day is tomorrow and all the Poppies I see is such a beautiful sight and makes me feel so proud. I keep mine from the last few years, pinned around the house so I guess you can imagine, I have a bouquet. I'll be attending a ceremony and my son has been asked to do Flag duty again. We are proud and they have great admiration for the duties of our Soldiers, both past and present and includes you.

I came across a article about the Navajo Code Talkers. They are looking to set up a museum about these soldiers in particular and their activities. I was surprised with learning about them not having been aware of how much they had helped. They upheld the directive to not discuss their duties. Amazing, don't you think?

I found it rather poignant and believe they should get full support and approval of their project, for their contribution. They are for now, literally, living historic figures! and a novel chapter of WW II history. It would be curious, to find out what the soldiers children have to say about their fathers, who worked with a Code talker, don't you think? they will be participating in the Veterans Day parade in NYC, well, a few of them. I bet they will look fantastic!

Come to think of it. My own father and late uncle had served in Korea and they would not disucss this topic either. My sons are part of a family that has kept a family history from their first arriving ancestor to Canada. They have reunions also but there are two branches in the family and the Native American side feel uncomfortable even though they are also in the family album. Yes, they included my picture also.

How time flies when we are having fun and I must be running over time for you. Sorry my darlins. I will leave this for you and includes commentary --> Actual Newspaper Headlines
