Memorial Day Memories

My father is a West Point graduate, and my mother was a military wife (as were both of my grandmothers). Memorial Day gives us a chance to say thank you... to the soldiers and families of soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice, every day.

My mom and dad (now divorced) were married at West Point

My Dad and I on the army base in Washington State

Even tough army officers have to change diapers and make little airplane noises to get their babies to eat...

My grandpa Di Maria in his air force uniform with my grandmother. (They have been married for over 60 years.)

My paternal grandfather, who died from diabetes before I was born, in his army uniform.

(I'm not a Tim McGraw fan... but darn this video is good.)
