Remembering Our Fallen Veterans

Veterans Day is a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. It is observed on the 11th of November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918. Before World War II, Veterans Day was known as Armistice Day in the United States and, in most Commonwealth Countries, the day is still known as Remembrance Day. On this Veterans Day, remember those who died in service to their country in the Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam.

There are three
Veteran's in my family; three deceased and one retired from the Naval Reserves. Their memories are cherished and kept alive in our Family Museum with
keepsakes, uniforms, Certificates and artworks. Please take a moment and read my first post on this subject dated 11/11/2014.
Perhaps it will inspire you to put your family Veteran's things in your Museum.

And please,
do not forget to take time to honor our Veteran's
and purchase a Poppy.

Great post! Old photos and medals are an integral part of any family museum.

Thanks Ronda. The photos will always be cherished, but I wish I had more than just pictures.
