Memorial Day

I just wanted to say that around Corgi Country, we support our Troops, and are thankful for people like Dad who served their country in our armed services.

My Dad is a veteran from the Vietnam Era, and he was despised and rejected during that time, though he was just trying to serve our country. Now, people are making it up to our veterans and giving them the honor I believe they deserve and deserved.

My Dad is a wonderful and brave man and we are proud to call him our Dad! He will serve tomorrow in our town’s American Legion Honor Squad salute to the Veteran’s at the Cemetery, as he did last year.

My Mom and Dad have several friends that they remember on Memorial Day that served their country and are gone now, so we just wanted to take time to pay them tribute.

Proud to be the American Pembroke Welsh Corgis of Corgi Country! OC, BG & Dott

Kudos to your dad for serving his country during a difficult time. I remember that era very well and also some of my classmates who never returned.

Great post OC! Be sure to give your dad extra hugs and kisses today and tell him that I thank him for his service to our country. I was a Vietnam baby. My dad was in the Army and re-enlisted just to go to Vietnam.

Dad said to tell you all thank you very much for your kind comments... (I wrote this after he had gone to bed last night so it was a nice surprise for him to see it today) OC

I saw your comment on Maya's blog about not being able to see the drawing. And it is most likely because you don't have java, since it was drawn in a java tool.
