Remember

The Bag Lady's father and two of his brothers served in WWII. The Bag Lady has, in previous years, posted pictures of her father from his navy years, and has some of his things from that era. Recently, she was going through a little zippered pouch that belonged to her father and came across some photographs. One of them was a picture of one of her father's brothers in his army uniform.

This was taken in Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC.

The Bag Lady's uncle (who is, coincidentally, the father of Leah, who writes the always interesting blog, The Goat's Lunch Pail) is on the right.

I love totem poles and Stanley Park, but I love honoring veterans even more.
Thank you, Bag Lady, and thank you to your dad and his brothers.

You, Reb and Leah have much reason to be proud. Thank you to your family. I'm watching the CBC ceremonies, listening to interviews with mothers of fallen soldiers. It's heartbreaking.

Leah - you're welcome!

Cheryl - thanks. This is a great picture, isn't it?

kcinnova - and thank you to your husband!!

Hilary - You have even more reason to be proud - your son is a wonderful example of our young people!

Great picture! I need to find one of my dad in uniform - he was in a MASH unit in Korea. He was the company clerk, and no they didn't call him Radar. :-)

Cool that you found that photo Sis. I have never seen it before.

Hats off to the folks that served so well! I'm raising a glass of sweet tea. My dad was a submariner in the Pacific during WWII, so aren't we really long lost sisters in service underneath it all?
