Veterans' Day

Happy Veterans' Day to all of the brave men and women who have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces. We are more grateful than we will ever be able to put into words.

Living over here, TLS and I have been able to visit Lorraine American Cemetery in St. Avold, France and Luxembourg American Cemetery in Luxembourg. Here are some pictures from both.
it is a Jewish custom to leave a stone when you visit a grave- we took some stones with us and laid them on the graves of the Jewish soldiers that we saw there
Here Rests in Honored Glory a Comrade in Arms Known But to G-d
Tomorrow, to pay our respects, TLS and I will go visit Lorraine American Cemetery again. If you have a relative who is buried there and would like us to leave flowers at the grave or to take a picture of it for you, please email me and I will be happy to do so for you.

I will leave you with one last picture of me with my favorite veteran at his squadron's Thanksgiving function this year.
thank you to Jessica Marie Design for editing out our last name on this one!

A final note: please remember that Bellevue Newport is generously donating 100% of the proceeds from tomorrow night's sale to a Wounded Warrior who lost his leg in an IED attack in Afghanistan. Please join them tomorrow night if you can. If you make a purchase from tomorrow night's sale, you will get an extra 5 entries into my giveaway.


  1. what a nice custom (stones on graves) - so thoughtful of you guys to do that (i'd expect nothing less of course)

    happy veterans day to you and yours. thank YOU for all that you do to support your husband and our country!

  2. Happy Veteran's Day and thank you to you both!

  3. Great photos, and happy day to you both.

    You should make the trip to Bastogne, Belgium, where the Battle of the Bulge took place...the memorial there is marvelous.

  4. I love the old cemeteries... It really brings alive history and makes you realize that all the numbers in history books weren't just numbers, they were people each with their own story.
