Who are your family’s veterans?
By Candace DeBerry Feature Consultant/Coordinator
Recently, our family had a yard sale which can be painstaking, but beneficial to the goals of cleaning out the shed, organizing treasures, having fellowship with neighbors, and making a little bit of extra loot. During this time my husband Scott and I were able to rediscover some of our family treasures including pictures, cards, and keepsakes. We rediscovered pictures of our families that span from the late 1800s to present. We also found documents that we had forgotten about, reminders of our courtship, and the growth of our sweet baby girl. We even found pictures of both me and my granddaddy in our Navy uniforms. These service pictures prompted fond memories that have defined our family. These memories when combined with the memories of other American families honor our veteran’s sacrifices.
Tensions seemingly remain high after the recent 2012 primary election, but I can’t help but think how blessed we are to live in this wonderful nation where we have the right to vote without fear of persecution. Levy Living would like to say, “Thank you!” to the men and women who are serving and who have served and have sacrificed to ensure we have the right to vote along with all of the other freedoms we have in this, “…one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” You are heroes.
We decided to showcase three generations of veterans from our family and tell you a little bit about them. This week, we extend to our fans, subscribers and readers an opportunity to share about your veteran(s), and active duty service member(s). Just follow this link to upload a photo and tell us a little bit about them and their time serving as veteran.
