This is from a previous post about "veterans" that I had posted last June...but it had the photos of some of our military family members, so I am sharing this again for this week's Alphabe-Thursday's "A" with Jenny!
Alicia for FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK.
And I also am sharing some other Armed Forces Art that was not on the original post.
The following are some past photos of some of our family who have served in the Armed Forces...
This was taken on our wedding day with my dad and my honey in their Air Force uniforms.
Dad, me, Mr. B, my little brother, Mom
West Allis, Wisconsin
Here are some of my Mr. B aka Handsome Hawaiian Hubby aka Honey, Sweetie, Hubba-bubba (I really don't call him this, but thought it's a cute nick name :o)
He was in the Air Force,
as a Space Shuttle/Crash Rescue/EMT fireman.
And this was during flight school:
And this was taken of my mom, hubby, me and my dad
at the Flight School Graduation Ball as an Army Aviation Warrant Officer:
Since I could not find the photo of Dave's dad in uniform, I am posting this one.
Mr. B's dad served in the U.S. Army. During the Korean war, an explosion occurred and he was blinded for 2 weeks and also told that with injuries from shrapnel, he would not have kids.
...well...here he is with Mr. B's mom right after they came home with their second of four children. This was Mr. B as a baby.
I am sooo thankful that the docs were wrong! :o)
Mr. B was born about 14 months after his older brother, followed by their sister - 13 months later and then 6 years after came their younger sister.
This Mr. B's Uncle Delbert in the Army.
(his mother's older brother)
He has such a sweet, loving way about him.
(late 1940's/early 1950's)
He lives in Hawaii.
This is Mr. B's cousin Bobby leaving for the Army.
He was taller than Mr. B's dad who was 6'1".
(Uncle Bobby was also much older than Mr. B and his siblings, so out of respect,
the kids called him Uncle Bobby):
Uncle Bobby, Mr. B's Dad, Mr. B
This one is a photo of Mr. B's Uncle Peter also leaving after being on Army leave.
Uncle Peter and his wife, Aunt Darlene, were the first of Mr. B's family
that I met when we first started dating in New Mexico.
at the Hilo, Hawaii airport.
Voovoo, Uncle Bobby, Uncle Peter, Mr. B's mom

One of Mr. B's Dad's brother-Uncle George-retired Army colonel,

Aunt Patty and Uncle George
Mr. B and brother Joey
My dad is retired Air Force.
We traveled & lived mainly in the United States and the Pacific...
moving about every 2 years.
My Lolo served in the Philippine Army:
He helped take care of me when I was really little :o)
I remember him being fit and strong.
I have more family on my mom's side that served in the Philippine Army.
This is my brother Leo, who is currently in the Navy.
holding their pretty princess, SIL, and little cutie.
This was taken after his promotion to Chief Ceremony in San Diego.
And if you have been to my blog before, you have seen this photo of Mr. B.
It is one of my favorites. :o)
I asked him to "Please" take this photo.
***Isn't it great what our loved ones do for us? :o)***
(My Awesome Army Aviator!)
It was taken after his last official flight.
Now he says he "flies a desk."
We both have more family that have served in the military, but these are the photos that I was able to find. Thank you to all those who have served or are currently serving in the military. And also to all the families of military men and women.
Thank you Denise for your recent order of these two for thank you/farewell gifts.
