#SOL19: A’Marek’n Veterans


How do we honor Veterans?

In past blog posts I have used:

Veteran’s Day Blackout Poem

Thankful (4 generations)

to commemorate Veteran’s Day.

It’s hard to follow any one family in our family tree.  Brothers marry sisters and double first cousins appear. Families grow. Families expand.

Yesterday was a day to stop, think, and remember. A day to celebrate Veterans.

What branches were represented? Where did they serve? What friendships grew among their peers? What friendships remain decades later?

On my dad’s side and in his generation – only two kids. Two brothers. And yet in this family line . . . four generations. My grandfather, my dad, my brother and my son . . . one line of veterans . . . Mareks!

Two deceased and two still serving.

How did you celebrate Veteran’s Day? 

What does Veteran’s Day mean to your family?
