Memorial Day

Whether we agree or not.....
Remember our brave men and women through the 12 major wars and every action in between:
The American Revolution 1775-1783
The War of 1812 1812-1815
The Mexican American War 1846-1848
The Civil War 1861-1865
The Spanish American War 1898
World War I 1914-1918
World War II 1939-1945
The Korean War 1950-1953
The Vietnam War 1954-1975
Operation Desert Storm 1991
Operation Enduring Freedom 2001 – Present
Operation Iraqi Freedom 2003 – Present
The one organization that I do support especially during Memorial Day, as a knitter, is The Ships Project. They send handmade hats, slippers, cool-ties and cool-heads to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed currently across the world. Each one loves receiving “Hugs from Home” It is the one organization that when I can, I knit a hat and when I can save enough pennies too I send them money for postage as well. Whether I agree with what they are doing over there doesn't matter but, I believe that they all deserve to not be forgotten and deserve a touch of home.
Happy Memorial Day!
