Stampin' Up! Baby Bear for our Troops



My grandfather, George, fought in WWII in the Navy, my uncle Corvin had fought in Vietnam in the Army, Uncle Dean served in the Navy and my father-in-law, Harold, fought in Korea. Both sides of our families have a history of serving in wars and in the military. My son-in-law, Chris, is a civilian paramedic but he served our country in Afghanistan. Even though he was not in the military he worked on the base. He learned very quickly how to read the ranks of the military personal lol!! He was there for three years while my step-daughter stayed here. So to honor them and those who have fallen on foreign soils, died at home and those who are serving or will one-day serve… God Bless America!!
