Hi Nina, I love the Letter to My Hero one. Very touching. My husband won't be running. He did the NYC Marathon this past Sunday so he needs a break

Making quilts, writing thank you letters.  Those are all good events to support the troops in honor of Veterans Day.

With the exception of one cousin all the veterans in my family have gone to Heaven. However, there are new members in my family who are going to be future vets meet my grand daughter. I will not give her name to protect her.
