Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's day, and the day I decided to start a blog. I'm not much of a writer, so we will see how this goes.
Today is a day to reflect on those who have served in the military. I am thankful for all of these people.
I have a few ancestors who have served. On my dad's side, there is Jesse Fields who served in the Civil War. On my mom's side, we have Gurden Chamberlin who served in the Revolutionary War, and I think there is another one but I can't find or remember him now. We aren't much of a military family, it seems. I have a cousin on my mom's side who has been involved with JAG, but otherwise I don't know of anyone else who comes close. We mainly are doctors, teachers and farmers (present and past).
My husband has more military relatives, but maybe I will comment on those later.
May all the Veterans have a great day! Thank you for your service and God bless you!
