You have a lot of heroes in your family, Anna. That s so wonderful. And how nice that you have these vintage photos and certificates. They are priceless...Christine


It's nice that all those things have been saved and kept together in the family. I like the way the card from King George is framed.


Wow, what a wonderful and inspiring post. You are so lucky to have all this family history and these pictures. I have a few pictures of my father and grandfather in their uniforms...always such prized possesions.


What a great tribute to two great men. Thank you for sharing.


A wonderful tribute to these special people in your life on this holiday.


We owe so much to our servicemen, past and present. Great family stories, and I'm glad they came home safely. Enjoyed the music too!

This is a beautiful post. I love that your family took such good care of these things and that they took the time to tell you the meaning of each. Again, beautiful! -diane


I have a similar Veterans day post.



Very interesting. Love all your saved things from your grandfather and the wonderful pictures. I've done a few scrapbook pictures with my husband and dad's pictures. Still need to do some of my grand father who was in WWII and my great uncle who was killed going to fight in England.

I love family history and glad there are people who preserve it for us all.
