I never did get to meet my Uncle Ammon as he died in 1957 in France while serving our country.
I met Uncle John a couple of times, but we were too poor to visit him very much.
These are my oldest two uncles and I'm ever so proud of them. They both served in World War II. Ammon was Army and John was Marines.
My father wasn't able to serve in the Korean War (something to do with medical/physical--they must have been really picky, but I'm ever so thankful because he probably wouldn't have married my mom).
My brother Dale is a retired Lt. Col. in the US Army.
My husband's maternal grandfather also served in the Navy (I believe).
My gratitude for these wonderful men who served is over flowing today. God bless the USA and those who serve.
