Default Hello from a newbie :)

Hello; I've just joined this forum and thought I would take a second to introduce myself.
I'm an oldie, but a goodie, lol, 54 and from Rochester Michigan.
My dear hubbie is a Vietnam Vet ( Army )and we are the proud parents of a son serving his second tour of duty in Iraq
(Also Army).
I also served briefly as an Army nurse in Vietnam.

My current occupation is that of a teacher. I love teaching and am never hesitant to tell those whose futures I am trying to help shape, what a wonderful country we live in and how important it is for us to support our military.

Well, I am on break at the moment and must get back to the classroom; but you can be sure that I will be back often and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hugs, Patriot Lady

Welcome to the PF and welcome home to both you and your husband.
Please if you get a chance to speak to your son or when you write to him, thank your son for his service from me and America.

Michigan - my grand-parents on my Mother's side lived in Michigan. Leroy, MI just outside of Cadillac. Had two uncles up there - one did milk cows (Uncle Chuck) and the other died so long ago I can remember his name (I feel bad cause his name is lost to me right now) but when we were young we'd ride his old horse with a sway'd back. Three of us could lay side by side across his back.

I also remember the Michigan snow apples. Ugly on the outside but snow white on the inside. They are all gone now but I remember them clearly and can see their faces.

Welcome aboard we can always use some new input as we older dogs are getting abit weathered - if ya know what I mean. ha ha
