Veteran's rememberance.

Seeing others mention the Veterans in their families reminds me I should make mention of ours as well. The Rihn line has been lucky in timing--either too old or too young when war broke out, so we aren't a very martial family. My father's uncles, Bob and Arnold Jones, were with Merrill's Maurauders in Burma, and came home. My mother's brother Jim Lambert served in Korea and Japan in peacetime.

Georgie's grandfather Robertson survived the Gallipoli campaign (as a result never having a good word to say about Churchill thereafter). Georgie's father Richard Schnobrich served in the US Navy in the Pacific in 1944-45, and survived it as well.

All honor to them! We have been fortunate.
