In Honor of My Ancestors Who Fought-Veteran's Day

11 November 2011

Today is Veteran's Day in the United States.  What better day than 11/11/11 to honor those who have served our country.

I would like to pay tribute to my ancestors this Veteran's Day.  I would not be able to enjoy my freedom without their sacrifices and service.  Thank you to all who have served and are serving this great country.

I have only recently begun researching the military history of my ancestors.  Below is a chart of the ancestors I have identified as serving.  I am sure I will find a few more as I continue to research.  I know there are other collateral lines who have served to.
