Today is a time to “think about those around you, as well as those in your own family, who have served their country. Go out and about and hunt and gather their photographs, and think about them not just on this Veterans Day, but often.” My husband and I both come from military families, and we were raised in that tradition. Neither of us regret that upbringing and way of life because it made us who we are.
Rather than a new post, I hope you will take a look at my post from Veteran’s Day 2018. Last year I highlighed some women in It’s Veteran’s Day for Georgia Photographers, too. And you may also want to take a look at another 2018 post and read my Military Mystery for Memorial Day. That one relates to Ft. McPherson, or Ft. Mac as we military families called it, and it is a place where many of my childhood memories lie.
On Veteran’s Day 2017 I posted Three Photographers and the Military, 1861 regarding the advertisements posted by three photographers in the same Macon, Georgia, newspaper, on the same day and on the same page, as the men of their city went off to war, many of whom would never return.
