Memorial Day is celebrated in different ways by our nation. To this family it is remembering those who came before us and those who are serving now.
Here is a Memorial Day Album of the Fenton Service Members!
|This is the "Wall of Heroes" in my Husband's office. Of course there MUST be a cute colonial sconce on that wall as well!!|
|This is a photo of my Husband, George's Grandfathers. Both were Marines.||George's Mother and Father basically grew up knowing each other from various duty stations.|
|This is a photo of George's Dad during the Korean War.|
|This is Col George Fenton with our son Lt. Patrick Fenton. Patrick was still at VA Tech in this photo. This was at a formal dinner with Patrick's ROTC class.|
|1st Lt Patrick Fenton just before leaving for Afghanistan.|
|All the Fenton kids at a ceremony when Patrick received his 1LT bars.|
All of the military genes are on the Fenton side of the family. My uncle and my step Father are both retired Army Colonels! They actually served together! How funny that my Mom would meet her Husband, both lost their spouses, and then find that my Uncle and Her Husband were friends!! Small world, as they say, or should I say small military.
Soooooo I hope y'all have a wonderful day and please say a prayer for all of our brave service members that keep us safe and free!!
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY 2012!
