Thank You to our Veterans'


America's White Table
 
 If you have time watch the below video.

 

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.

  3. Carla, I am thankful for all our service people Four of my brothers and three nephews, are veterans in my family. My daughter Angie is teacher in a fifth grade here in town. She has a celebration of Vets every year. She started this because she learned some children did not know the meaning of Veteran. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  13. I've been absent for a little while, busy with life, but I'm reading back all your posts that I've missed and hope to do better. I hope you're doing well, dear Carla, and not missing your beautiful boy too much. A hug.
