Happy Veterans Day!!
I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone that has served this great country, including my ancestors. The sacrifices they made and the hardships that they had to endure are not lost on me. I am very proud to have ancestors that have served throughout the history of our nation, back to the Revolutionary War.
Here is a list of some of the many people in my family (and my husband’s) who have bravely served our country in the Armed Forces.
Nathaniel Brittain (he lost his life during the war)
Charles Clark Moorman
War of 1812:
Jacob Frederick Sanchez-Tereso
John Henry Becker
Samuel Edward Lee
Peter Henry Weeks
Adam Potter Cavit
George Turner Cavit
Hugh M. Robertson
World War I:
World War II:
Alphonso James Thornton, Jr. (He received the Purple Heart for his service in the Pacific)
Donald Arthur Sanchez
My Uncles Rick, Steve, Dave, and Pat
Julian, Vince, and Dave Weeks
And last but not least, my wonderful husband who is still on Active Duty after 22 years of service in the Army.
Now that I think about it, I guess I’m a veteran too. Goodness, I look too young to be wearing a uniform in this picture.
