Veteran’s Day is an incredibly important holiday that we spend commemorating those who have served our country in the armed forces. Our day-to-day lives would be very different if it weren’t for the sacrifices they have made, and they deserve all the respect and gratitude we can offer. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate a veteran in your life, you can do so with this Veteran’s Day scrapbook layout that blog contributor Beth Beller made. Check it out!
Today we show our respect to those who have served our great country! My father-in-law served in the U.S. Navy for four years and was so proud of that time. Though we lost him 13 years ago to pancreatic cancer, I will always remember the stories he told. One thing I love that he always talked about was the good times. He wanted to spare us the details of “things we should never see and do.” His positive attitude is what made him the great man he was.
