Military Monday–Veterans Day Edition

In commemoration of Veterans Day, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of the members of the military who have selflessly served their fellowmen and this great country, the United States of America.

I also wanted to list my ancestors who have contributed to keeping these United States a free nation.  There may be some I missed because I am not aware of their service at this time.  If that is the case, I hope to update this list later.

  1. Wonderful post, Jana! Lots of good family history there to research. Looks like both of our fathers served in Korea.
