    Our Military Heroes!

    They are All Heroes

    Thank You RG for your blog.

    We need to honor and support our Veterans, from all wars and times of peace. Especially those that serve today.

    I have many friends who are Vets and some are disabled. These men gave their all and although they came home they did not come back the same as when they left. They need our appreciation and support still today. They did not receive a heroes welcome when they came home like our military gets today.

    I am a Navy Veteran from the late 60's and early 70's.

    I spent my active duty on the USS Little Rock, CLG-4. I got to see lots of ocean and saw much of Europe. From the Baltic Sea, to the Mediterranean and as far east as Athens, Greece and on into the Caribbean. I was a Operations Specialist (Radar) 3rd Class.

    I learned so much and I grew up a lot because of my military experiences.

    I am an active member of the Little Rock Association.

    The first member of my family to be in the military was in the Revolutionary War and came from the Dunbarton, NH. He was Asa Putney.

    My great great Grandfather, William Winters Putney from Wilmot, NH fought in the Civil War and died in Andersonville Civil War Prison, also officially known as Camp Sumter.

    Until my brother Don joined the Navy in 1965, no one in my family had been in the Military since William.
    My grandfather and dad were exempted due to their jobs although they tried to join during WWI and WWII.

    Stay Tuned

    I am proud to have family that served our country and will be working on collecting stories and pictures from them.

    My father and our very own NoBozo served in the Navy
    My father is a great story teller and I hope he will jump in directly at some point.
    (I stole one of his hats when I was a kid and wore it out.)

    My father in-law and nephew served in the Air Force
    Dad is a great story teller too.

    My uncle, brother in-law and our very ownPepper served in the Marines

    My cousin served our country in the Army

    It just seems natural to share my thoughts with my Forum friends.
    One stop shopping for my social interaction needs.
    Take a trip back in time and honor our heroes at The Wright Museum.

    From the gallery of nswebcraft

    The museum is open by special arrangement during the months November through April. Click here for hours and additional information.
    When the young men dress up in the old military uniforms for the parades in Wolfeboro, it really brings home just how young these heroes were.

    Thanks for starting this blog RG. Its tough having family and friends overseas fighting for America. I think the more we talk about our Men and Women in uniform, the more awareness we can generate for them and their family's sacrifices. The next time you see a service person, don't be bashful, walk up to them, and say thank you. You'll feel better, and so will they.

    Thanks so much!

    As the grandmother of two military grandsons, I really appreciate the support!

    One is an Army Captain with the 5th Stryker Brigade in Afghanistan
    One is an Airman First Class presently finishng his schools to be a C130 Loadmaster

    Scott near his bunk


    Scott in a bunker - I Love that bunker! I'm all about those thick walls!

    It is a somewhat scary journey and I have taken my three Forum friends, RG, Chickie and Pineedles right along with me! They've been great...cannot thank them enough!

    I do have a few stories about Scott's adventures in Afghanistan that I can tell...once I figure out all the blog rules!

    Meantime, keep all the troops in your prayers.
