Veterans' Day

Happy Veterans' Day to Lieutenant Commander Hans
De For, my son
, plus my brother
Jerry, retired US Navy; my Uncle Allan, US Navy; cousin Wayne (deceased), US Navy;son-in-law Chad, US Air Force; nephew Keith, US Navy; cousin Pudge (Pat's husband), US Air Force; cousin Charlie (Kari's husband), retired US Air Force; Pete, Rachel's father, US Air Force; Ken, Sarah's father, US Air Force; Sarah's brother Ryan, US Coast Guard.

I'm extremely proud of all of you!

This wouldn't be complete without recognizing Rachel, Josiah, Annika and Will for the support they give Hans each and every day. They sacrifice a lot by being away from family and friends, and often Hans, and I'm so proud to have them in my family!

I recognize the event that the picture is from...did you take it from LASSEN's website? If anyone is wondering, Hans is the one in front with the sword. I know how hard it is sometimes to pick a man in uniform out of a group. So many times while Hans was in Afghanistan did I "think" I saw him walking around post here!

Thank you...!

Yes, Rachel, the photo was taken from the USS Lassen's web site. When I enlarge the photo, it's easy for me to see Hans. He's the handsome one with the good posture.
