Not A City Girl Any More !

My small space in a big world

Thoughts of My Memorial Day

Today my thoughts were of my Grandfather Frank Mallette who was in World War I United States Army   303 Wagon Co.

My Uncle Paul Mallette  who was in World War II United States Army 420 ARMDFLD ARTY BN

Of my Nephew David Brackett JR  who was in the Iraq war United States Navy USS Taylor .

All of my family members all returned home safely from the Wars and we as a family have been very lucky they did their duty  for our country and returned home safely.

My Grandfather came home and raised his family during the Depression and died at 70 not long after I was born.

My Uncle Paul Who enlisted in the Army during World War II came home but on his Birthday was killed . We never found out who his killer was or why he was killed. He was only 24 years old. I keep a picture up of him thinking how so unfair it was for him to serve his country and his country could not even bring any justice to his death.

My Nephew Jr came home and has been going to collage His talent is drawing and art. He has finished his first 2 years while working a full time job and I am proud of him as even when it seems to hard at times he still strives for  very good grade and continues working.

These are the people I think of on Memorial Day . They served our country , did their duty and deserve to be thought of.
