Lyman Frederick Coolidge Jones served with the 57th Minnesota Regiment in 1862. He was my second great grandfather.Clyde Banks, born in 1893, was my Granduncle. He served in the Army Air Corps as an observer over France. He was a Photographer.
Above is my uncle Clarence Banks, born in 1904, who served in the U.S. Army from July 1942 to May 1945.
Above is my mother's brother, Ted Ferris born in 1916, He served in the U.S. Army. He had to leave his wife and two little children behind. He was injured and survived. Unfortunately the horrible things he saw and the horror of war were with him until the day he died.

Another hero, my cousin Clarence Carroll, born in 1929, who served in the Korean war. He was shot but thank God, he survived.

These men are all hero's to me as are all the troops who have ever served or are now serving to protect the United States of America.

I am not posting pictures of family who served and are still living, but I am equally proud of them.

This Veteran's day, please remember our troops, and their families.

Where would we be without them?
