I am making a "Memory" scrapbook for a co-worker who is leaving to move to another state. He is originally from the Czech Republic and grew up there under Soviet rule. He came to America at the age of 30 and is now a US citizen. This exemplifies what our service people really do -- they make our country a free place and an opportunity for those that want to be a part of that!

All of the men in my family have been in the service, but this Memorial Day I am going to be scraping pictures of my brothers time in the Marine Corp. including his times over seas. Sempre Fi Thank you to all service men and women for your services!!

For my dad who served in the US Navy and fought for our freedom in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. He was such a humble man that I didn't even know he earned four bronze stars until he passed away.

My cousin John gave his life saving a fellow soldier during combat in Vietnam in April of 1970. He received the Distinguished service cross for his bravery in combat. I am putting together a page to memorialize his great sacrafice for our country and our freedoms. I am extremely proud of his service as I am of all the men and women in my family who are currently active and have served. My husband also will get a page this weekend for his service in the Air Force. He served 5 tours overseas in wartime and is a hero to his daughter and I. I celebrate this holiday with pride and love.

I am a Proud Air Force wife and mother of 4. My husband has been in the Air Force for almost 21 years and is a MSGT. He Returned from a 5 month Tour in Afghanistan on April 5th . I just got the Pocket Page and Tag Sizzix die from OH MY CRAFTS for Mothers Day. Using my husbands photos and stories from Afghanistan I am crafting memory books for the wives and kids of my husbands men that deployed with him. Aslo My 10 y.o. Daughter, Reagan and I also make Treats for Troops to hand out to random soldiers while we are out and Kisses for Cops we pass out to the officers working at our gates along with thank you notes of course. By all means this Memorial Day thank a Soldier for their service but don’t forget to thank their families as well

I'm working on my first scrap book honoring my father who served in the Navy during WWII. He just came back from an "honors" tour of Washington DC sponsored by other veterans and I understand they treated the vets like royalty as they should. From his pictures and his itinerary, I'm trying to recreate his trip as a surprise for Father's Day.

For the first time, I am taking time to scrapbook for every person in our family who has served in the military. After doing some research, I was AMAZED to see how many family members past and present who have served. None of them died during war, but just signing your name on that line to join the military is volunteering to do so with honor. I'll be putting all my nifty tools to good use this weekend. :)

My daughter has CIF track finals and a scocer tournament this weekend. But in between I'll be working on a Father's Day card (my Dad is also a vet), a sympathy card for a friend who just lost her Dad, and a Memorial Day/Patriotic home decor piece. For me, this is the time of the year whrn I change the decor in our kitchen/house to red, white, and blue. Thanks for some fun!
