  3. Becky, Thank you for your service. And thanks to your family members for their service as well.

    These are wonderful photos! I especially like the one of your grandpa standing next to his WW1 photo.

    1. Thank you Jana. The photo of my grandpa with his WWI photo is one of my favorites. He was always proud of the fact that he enlisted rather than waiting to be drafted. Rightly so.

  4. Thanks Becky,
