November 11th Salute

November 11th is a day first remembered as the day WWI ended since that time many Men and Women have been called or volunteered to be in a branch of military service. I did not serve however I grew up with my father and many uncle’s who did serve.

Below is one example of 3 of my uncle’s, Art, Arnie and Ed Rettammel who were part of the 32nd Division, 121st Field Artillery who served in WWII. They eventually were sent to Australia, then New Guinea, Phillipines fighting against Japan from 1942-1945, over 3 yrs overseas. They did come back but I am sure they were affected by the horror of war. So I salute their service and the stories of those who served next to them but never came back.
