World War IIIn remembering Veteran’s Day I thought I’d share some pictures of items that were from my great uncle Clarence Thomen.  He was so proud of his service that he was buried in his uniform at age 87 in 1996. 

My handsome uncle is in the middle.

Grrrrrr  I just noticed that for the tenth time the blog has been rearranged. What the heck.  I really dislike how hard this format is to work with!

Thanks Bill.  I agree, it's important to remember the sacrifices that people have made and are still making so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.

Ok, so I just checked my outside blog and it looks fine, it is when I click on the post to comment that the rearranged version pops up.  Anyone know why?
