Memorial Day 2011

Dad's Footstone

"All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago."
— Rudyard Kipling

Dad's Headstone

In memoriam to my own father who served honorably in the
United States Air Force for 22 years
and saw action in both Korea and Vietnam.
Rest in peace, Dad, and thank you for all that you did
for this country and for me.
I should have told you that more often when I had the chance.

  2. Chilling, moving and full of love, honor and respect.

    I must admit I was not surprised to see a grave stone, given the many posts you do of cemeteries, but I got goose bumps and tears in my eyes when I saw "Orlomoski" on the head stone. Thank you for your service, MSgt. Orlomoski.

    big hugs xo

  6. Such a wonderful heartfelt tribute to your father and the other servicemen/women who sacrificed so much for us. Happy Memorial Day to you and yours, dear Linda. We don't celebrate Memorial Day here in Canada, instead we have Remembrance Day on November 11th every year:-) xoxo
