Happy 4 th of July.....our independance day !!!
Ralph August Meiling....somewhere in Europe....1943
woohooo !!! It is the 4 th of July...a time that America celebrates and remembers our past.....and a time that we are so very thankful of our military troops that help to keep us free. My Dad was a WWII vet...he spent 4 years overseas, first in Africa, then in Italy......after he passed away in 2007, I found his war picture album...all those places in pics.....he looked so young, he must have been amazingly brave to travel the world and defend our freedom. His pic album is a real treasure, he had told me of those pics often, but could not remember where he had put the album, so we never got to look through it together....and sadly, not ONE single pic, had a place or date on it....some pics are obvious....Africa is pretty easy to spot, as is Rome.....but I surely wish I knew where some of the other photos were taken....
Photos are a legacy that we leave behind for our heirs and the next generations.....a treasure to share for certain....
Enjoy your day, remember that because of soldiers of wars past...we are all free !!! and Happy 4th of July !!!
