My Family Heros

With honor; on this Memorial Day, I present
family members whom have served this country. Each
one of these brave men put their lives at risk for the
country that they loved. Some returned home to their
families after the war, and some never did. Let’s
not forget the brave American men who gave
everything, so that we would remain free. Bless my
grandmothers and aunts who’s husbands or sons
never came home. I say that they to are true heroes!
