HERO

I have three of the most wonderful sons any Mother could ever hope for! Each works as hard as he can in his chosen career and does there very best to take of their families. Of course, they are my favorite scrapbook subjects, and I often do use this forum to "Show-Them-Off". Today is another one of those moments, lol!

I have two sons in the military, and both really do love it. I always have to ask them what the ever-growing rows of service ribbons means on their uniforms. Recently, Nick's wife helped me take care of this problem, in regards to Nicholas' Service by sending me a list. Thank you Dawn!!! I got it scrapped on a patriotic page for family and friends! Carolyn, you need to do the same so I can do one for Michael!

I used the CELEBRATE LIBERTY-2009 Page set and the ALPHA by Rina Kroes
