Lest We Forget

Thank you to my mother’s stepfather, a British marine who served in both World War I and World War II who was taken prisoner in Crete and spent 1940 through 1945 as a German POW. Thank you to my grandfather who spent his career with the British navy and fought in World War II. Thank you to DH’s father who was the first one off his boat on the beaches of Normandy (he was the tallest and they wanted to see how deep the water was) then went on with the Fifth Medium Infantry of Canada to help liberate Holland. God bless my nephew who is in the Canadian military and is training to help the soldiers in Afghanistan. Thank you and God bless all those who have given their lives in service to their country to protect our freedom.

Thank You…

    A great post Leah. My father fought as well, in the Polish army that was taken under control by the Germans. Became a U.S pow and then transfered to the British. He is 87 now. And my mom was an evacuee from the south east coast of England, she is 80.
    With Thanks to all those that served.
