I was planning on posting about a rhubarb cream cake, but since my 100th post falls on a holiday, it seems better to write about Memorial Day and write about the cake tomorrow.
I don’t have a lot of close family members that have served in the military, but I thought I would pay tribute to some of those that have served. I looked and looked, but I can’t find my grandfather’s picture in his World War I uniform. I’ll have to save that for another day.
Walker Smith, my great-uncle in his World War I uniform.
James H. Cowan, my great-great grandfather, served in the Union calvary during the Civil War.
His headstone denotes his rank of Corporeal in the 15th Missouri Calvary.
Peter F. Walker, my great-great-great-great uncle, served in the Civil War for the Union. He was captured, escaped and later served as a spy.
Carl A. Milleson, my great-grandfather, served in World War I as a soldier from Jasper Co., Iowa.
Thanks to all those past, present, and future that have served our country to ensure and protect our freedoms. Tomorrow I will post the winner of my 100th post giveaway. Thanks to all who spread the word and entered the giveaway.
