Thanks To Our Veterans

Operation Write Home is having a blog hop starting today to honor our Veterans.  There are 11 outstanding companies participating.  I urge you to check it out over the weekend.  Here is the link to the beginning of the blog hop:  Stars and Stripes Blog. The focus is thanking those who serve and have served in the USA military. I've already went to a few of the blogs and the inspiration is incredible!

This is a Thank You card I made in memory of my father, TSgt Otis C. Perkins USAF.  I'll be sending it to one of my friends that currently serve in the military.
