Happy Veterans Day!
I'd like to thank all of the brave and selfless men and women who have served or are currently serving in the military to preserve the freedoms we all enjoy. And thank you to their families for their sacrifice as well.
I've written quite a few blog posts about some of the military veterans in my family tree. In last year's Veterans Day post, I shared links to these blog posts, but I've written more since then. So I'm sharing an updated list today.
Some of the blog posts I'm sharing today may not be military-related, but instead may tell more about the lives of the veterans. Also, the posts may not necessarily have the name of my military veteran ancestors in the titles. Instead, these blog posts may contain military-related information such as pension file pages, etc.
This isn't a complete list of military veterans in my family tree. I haven't written yet about some who've served and I may be unaware of the service of others at this time.
