Comments: THE VETERANS IN MY FAMILY

A handsome group of men Sarah. Thank You to them and to all who served/serve our country.

Sarah,
That was a really nice post. You've got a great-great uncle, Max Addington, who served in the army in WWI. I have letters that he wrote to my dad, your grandfather and a little boy at the time, from the battlefield in Germany. Your grandfather, Carl Addington, was not able to serve because he had a bad heart from rheumatic fever (no antibiotics at the time). He was very active on the homefront raising war bonds. I have a scrapbook with all the newspaper articles about his war efforts. Thanks for doing this on Veteran's Day.
Love, Mama

Wow, that's quite a line of heretige you have there. You dad, grandfather sure do look a lot alike. I bet you are really proud of them. I'm glad they served.
