Veteran's Day - You Are Not Alone

Hello my friends,

Today is a special day in the Real household.  Veteran's day.  It is a special Veteran's day for us this year because our daughter is marrying her Soldier boy in less than 5 days!

Here is my card.

I dedicate this card to our Active Duty Soldier; soon to be son-in-law Rich.

And to all the active duty men and women who put there lives on the line every day for us.

I also can't ever forget the first soldier boy in my life.  My dad, Papa Joe America.  He fought in World War II. 

I love this picture of my dad; my son looks just like him.  He passed away several years ago.
