Good Morning, Sandie!!
Today's post is an outstanding inspirational post, sweetheart!!
The Americans: The Super Heroes!!
Americans, the best ones in the world, WWI, WW2, Vietnam, etc.
Well,I've been going through your older posts, and found gorgeous pictures of you, and your dear family. Your grandsons are very good looking kids. Your son and daughter are very beautiful too, just like you, beautiful friend, Sandie. At times, we may hide behind the camera, yet we should rather glow instead.
Thank you for visiting my sites!!

My son is in DC this week and he was at a Military place and did a search so we were doing some the other night. I went over and did the search you have and my FIL came right up. Isn't it amazing what you can find?

Munir said...

It is hard to keep track of who your followers are. To be frank I read more blogs than the number of followers I may have.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Neat searching tool

Southwest Arkie said...

Love! My follower lists disappears all the time on both of my blogs- it's just another Blogger quirk I think.

The Boston Lady said...

I have never seen that website, Sandie and will check it out as that was my parent's era. I had an uncle who served and my dad was part of The Manhattan Project during that time. Ann

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Your blog looks very nice. You are a very brave lady for trying out the "new" stuff. I HATE "new", "improved", "updated" or any other words that mean I will have to press a button and puff- everything may be gone.

Arleen, the old fart.

Christa said...

I'm your newest follower!!

My husband got hooked on two years ago when I had surgery. He stayed home to take care of me and spent his time while I slept searching for distant family members. Even though I tease him about it, it really is a great resource, and very interesting.


Crystal Mary said...

I hope many people find the ones they are looking the ex service persoel they are looking for. It was kind of you to care. xxx

Sharon said...

Love this information.

However, I'll pass on the recipe for the brussels sprouts. Sorry, just can't stand those little guys...
