My father in law Ray Montana is a WW2 & Korean War Veteran, my father, Joe Cardamone was a WW2 War Veteran, and my son Joe Cardamone is an Iraq War Veteran, having served at Al Asad Air base in Iraq.

I am so proud of them and their service to our great country!

I served in the United States Army for 8 years and did a tour for deser shield/storm. My husband served during peace time and my uncle served in the vietnam war where he parished. I loved my experience in the military and have no regrets. God Bless all who have served and are still serving in the military.

I have a huge respect for our men and women in uniform and thank them today for their service and sacrifice. My dad was career National Guard here in Maryland, and I had the privilege of serving in the US Navy during Desert Storm. I chose the Navy because I love the ocean, and my first duty station was on the U.S. Holland AS32 which was a submarine tender out of Charleston, SC. I loved shipboard living and working outdoors, especially hanging off the side of such a huge ship as part of my duties. From Charleston I went on to Defense Information School (DINFOS) at Ft. Benjamin Harrison in Indiannapolis, IN for journalism training, and after school I was assigned to a broadcast billet in Adak, Alaska where I got to run radio boards and play "disc jockey". It was a great privilege and a wonderful experience.

My son is currently serving as a Captain in the U. S. Army. He returned from Afghanistan in March of '12. I have always appreciated those who have fought and sacrificed for our freedom, I now have an even greater appreciation for the brave men and women who serve our country so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have. Blessing to all who serve and sacrifice for our Country!

My father was in the Navy in the 60s. He was stationed on a destroyer and was a part of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

He took a lot of pictures while on tour, my favorites are of a fashion show that took place of the Greece coast. Imagine how happy a bunch of sailors must have been to see those beautiful ladies dress to the nines!!

I’m thankful for all all our service people and their families.

My wonderful dad volunteered to serve in the Navy during WWII. He was in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters and saw plenty of combat. His ship played a part in distributing supplies during the Normandy invasion. He survived aboard ship in a major typhoon in the Pacific. He was only 18 years old at the time and had atained the rank of Petty Officer 1st class. He was also a Gunner's Mate 2nd class. My dad passed away 1/11/2011 just 3 days shy of his 86th birthday. My dad definately belonged to the 'Greatest Generation'.

My father was in the Army in the 60's stationed in France. I remember seeing a black and white picture of him with the Eiffel Tower in the back ground. My brother also served in the Army. Myself, I did 4 years active USAF, Desert Storm, and 7 years in the Reserve all in the Florida panhandle...lot of life experiences to say the least. Wouldn't change it for the world. God Bless all those who have served, are still serving, and especially those who served in Vietnam.
