Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


I made the below slideshow in honor of our war heroes a few months ago.  On this veterans day, November 11, 2012,  I post it again as a reminder of their sacrifice and the price they paid, and continue to pay, for our freedoms.  

If you are a veteran or serving in the military in any country around the world or are  a family member of such a person, we salute you and thank you for your service and sacrifice.
