On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

I've seen a photo of my Dad in his uniform, but don't have possession of it. I'm guessing this one was taken on a base in the State of Washington either before or after serving in the Philippines and New Guinea. 

My Dad, my husband, my uncles, cousins, and friends have served during peace, during war, all making their contribution to keep our nation free. My aunt's first husband, Henry, died in WWII, leaving her a widow with two small boys. May God continue to bless those who are willing to lay their lives on the line, and may those who died rest in peace.

My nephews, Billy and Chase

This is from a night tour of the Korean War Monument
in Washington. D.C.
