Memorial Day Memories

See if you can pick out my Uncle Leo - look at the belly   ;-) 

Memorial Day Memories

Memorial day is an American Holiday occurring the last Monday of May - it commemorates all soldiers who died while serving this wonderful country.

I have had many family members who served in a war but thankfully they returned when their service was finished.  I pray for all family members of these heroes lost serving their country.  May God richly bless you!  I'd also like to thank all men & women currently in service - may God keep you safe.

Below is my Great Uncle Leo in his WW2 uniform - he did not see active duty but this is a picture from his training.  As you can see Uncle Leo enjoyed eating - his waist was so large that the United States Army did not have a belt large enough - he used a rope instead.


  1. How interesting that life must have been. I always wonder about WWII veterans and the life they came back to. Your uncle was very handsome too.

  2. Wow Angie. The Army must have had small belts back then :) What did they prefer? Svelte soldiers?

    I never had anyone killed in service, or who was even in the service during any wartime. I do take time to remember those who died in service and those who are serving now, whether wartime or not.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
