Today is a day when we honor all the service men and women who gave their lives and served in the military for this great country.

My father served in World War II in the U.S. Army as a medic and was captured in the Battle of the Bulge.  He was captured because he stayed behind to take care of the wounded during the battle.  After the war he was an active member of the P.O.W. movement to recognize and honor all P.O.W.’s.  He also was an active member in the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.

My son served in Iraq in the U.S. Navy aboard the carrier U.S.S. Washington and is now back in the U.S. and is no longer in the active Navy.

So to all those families who have had their loved ones serve in the military we say “God Bless You!” and know that they will be honored forever.

My father is no longer with us, but after the war he went on to live the “American Dream” and continued serving the public in the county court system back in N.W. Indiana.

My son now is pursing the “American Dream” near Chicago .

Being able to live “The American Dream” comes from all those service men and women who put their lives on the line to protect us and keep the “dream” alive.

We have nothing to add at this time except God Bless America and all the great men and women protecting us.
