Veterans Day -- Let's Honor those who have (or are) serving ...

John Richard Fountain (center front) -- My maternal grandfather
Copyright 2013 Diane L Richard

In the US today we honor those men and women who have served their country by serving in the military.


A great way to honor those who served is to document their stories and share those stories with the younger generations and generations to come.


Please post a comment about any “veteran” or someone actively serving in the military – no matter where they live or how they are serving or served.  Let’s keep them and their selfless service alive.

For example, I honor my maternal grandfather, John Richard Fountain, who served in WWII.
