    Exclamation More News on the home front

    As I was getting excited about Dean coming home from Iraq this week. We had another annoucement. My nephew, Brad enlisted in the Army yesterday. He will be off to Basic in a month! I am so proud of my Military Family!!!!

    In case you all didn't know, I am a Veteran twice. I served in the Air Force in the mid 70's then came back on active duty as an Officer in the Army Nurse Corp.

    SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: The thing that stands out to me in this forum is the close relationship we all have with each other, no matter what country we're from. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all wars could STOP if we could get everyone to communicate the way we do???? hummmmmmmmmm Maybe we should donate copies of SBM to Iraq and everyone associated with the war.

    Smile That is great

    Is the brick in a public park? Do others have bricks too? I like that idea. El Paso is a large Military Community and it is wonderful to see our military out in the stores and other public places.

    Yes it is in a public park. They built a veterans memorial just last year and we were able to purchase the bricks for a path that leads to it to help defray the cost. And yes there are many bricks. The Patriotic Society and the Veterans of foreign Wars are in charge of it I believe. My son and his Stepdaughter took part in this years Memorial day ceremony. They hang a wreath for each war, and his daughter hung the Iraqi/Afghanistan war and he was her escort. Very touching. I think I posted a layout in the gallery that was designed by Steve Russell.

    My husband's Father just passed away and he was retired Army. The services were with full honors and those young men were awesome. I am looking for any thing Army to make a scrakbook for all the Grandsons. Your template is awesome and I will use it with honor. If you have any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!
