Thank You ~ America's White Table



I found this book several years ago. It is so powerful. If you have not read it, I encourage you to read it. I read it aloud to my boys and family each Memorial Day. 
It is a children's book, it is so well done to bring the meaning of each veteran's gift of freedom to us. 
Thank you, Hero's!

A little - known tradition to the outside civilian world, "the white table" originated during the time of the Vietnam War as a symbol for and remembrance to service members held prisoner of war or missing in action. Solitary and solemn, it is the table where no one will ever sit.

Thank you to all men and women in uniform who dedicated their lives to freedom's cause.

  5. Carla, my brother-in-law served in the Vietnam War. I love children's books, and anything with a red rose on it intrigues me. :)
