I got to go to the annual memorial services this year at Fort Campbell and in Hopkinsville Kentucky. Back in 1985 my youngest brother was killed in a plane crash along with 247 other soldiers. This makes me a member of a Gold Star Family. As you can imagine this event was a life changing event for me and my family as well as the family members of all the soldiers.
If you have lost a loved one in the military you know exactly what I am talking about. I thought I would share this part of my life with my blogging comrades because this event in my life is part of who I am, it was a defining moment in my life so to speak.
I am not going to write a big post just share some pictures so you can get the mental picture of how our military honors those lost in service to our country.
There was also a memorial service held in Gander where the plain crashed.
I am very thankful that my brothers death is still being remembered each year and his service honored with these memorial services.
I am a member of what we call a Gold Star Family. 🌟
My youngest brother died in a plane crash along with a lot of other soldiers back on December 12, 1985.
Every year there is a memorial ceremony at the Fort Campbell military base for all of us Gold Star Family members.
It’s a great honor for us and totally awesome that my brother and his fallen comrades are still remembered and celebrated.
This year is going to be a bit different because in January my mother passed away. Every year we talk to other families that have lost family members but this year we did as well.
I will be writing a few posts next week as we travel to and attend the ceremonies. For today I am going to share some pictures of earlier trips.
As you can imagine the lose of my brother right before the Christmas holiday has always made the holiday less of a Merry Christmas time.
I am glad the Army still has these memorial services every year for our families. My brother was very proud to be in the Army and loved serving our country. He lost his life protecting the freedoms we are blessed to have here in America.

I been living with my elderly Dad and helping take care of him for a while now. One of the hardest parts is all the yard work. I never have liked yard work and especially hate raking leaves. I love my Dad and want to help him stay living in his house for as long as possible. He is 91 and can barely walk so he can’t take care of the yard anymore.
I am one of those introverted people who enjoys reading books and doing research online. One reason I decided to write this post is to see how a picture from my new phone will look in a blog post. My old phone died and I bought a new Moto G6. It is not a fancy phone but it is all I need in a phone.
This is my first post here on WordPress using the upgraded blog post builder as well. Took me a few try’s to get started but I do think I will like it.
Here in America we have a yearly holiday we call Thanksgiving. I am sure there are a lot of traditions that go with this holiday that are different for each family and group of people. The main ideal is to have a day to give thanks for family and friends and all the blessings that God has given us.
So I wish all my American followers a Happy Thanksgiving Day.
And to everyone else I also wish you a Happy Thanksgiving as well.
