To Honor my Husband on Veteran's Day

Today, especially, I honour my husband on Veteran's Day. He served in Viet Nam as a gunner on a helicopter, in the maintenance of the airplanes and in the secret and confidential files. He sufferred one serious flashback a few years ago where he motioned combat signals to his wife to get down and take cover. After a brief hospitilization, he was fine. He does not talk much about the war but I know from the stories he has told me of his intense bravery and courage. We watch a lot of the military channel which has helped me learn so much about history and the supreme cost of war. I don't like war, but I do value our freedom and so appreciate my husband and the many others who have served our country. God Bless America and thank you for my own hero!


  1. I appreciate the service your husband gave...and I pray for peace...for him....and peace for our world. This is a beautiful post...written from the heart of a hero's wife. God bless you both.
    May God bless America.

  2. Veteran's Day is always a special day to this military family.
    When I was young, growing up in England, I used to sell the poppies in school, everyone wore them on their lapels, the whole town wore them.
    I am grateful to all of the heros who have served their countries, including your husband and mine. Thank you and God Bless.

  3. Nice post Carol. I too am thankful for the service and sacrifice of so many who fight for our freedom.

    And oh, the poppies... My Grandpa bought one for each grandchild each year. A nice memory for me also.

    God Bless America

  4. Thank you, to both of you, for your service.

  5. Thank your husband for his service. He is a hero. You also.

  6. From a Veteran WAC, thank your husband for me for serving....Viet Nam was one monster of a war and the people back home never treated the soldiers kindly like they do today.
