Diva's Dad in his army uniform in Ft. Knox, Kentucky, 1960. Luckily, he never saw any action from the Vietnam War and spent some of his tour in Europe. He is alive and well and residing in Michigan where he enjoys the company of his grandchildren.
My mother's father and my grandfather George Scott at Ft. Sheridan (third from left on bottom) Grandpa had a wife and four children at home in Michigan at the time and gained his U.S. citizenship by fighting in World War II. He came home to his family and fathered three more children and lived to a ripe old age.
A letter written by my grandmother for my mother (Becky), her brother(George) and sister (Brenda) to their dad during the war at a time when snail mail was the only option and letters both ways were anticipated and cherished.
Thank you to all of our soldiers, past, present, fallen and alive, for their bravery and sacrifice.
La Diva will be back tomorrow with Meatless Mondays!
