Bay Area Militaria Show and Veteran's Day


I went to the Bay Area Militaria show a couple of weeks ago. I was actually in Downtown Hayward and saw a sign and went in. I had never been to one and it was interesting. With Veteran's Day upon us I decided to share:








I want to thanks to all my fellow vets and remember the ones who died serving this country. I was in the U.S. Navy for four years and served on the USS KIDD (DDG-993):


and the USS Truxtun (CGN-35):


I don't like putting myself in here but here is the the Naval me in 1993:


Please in your busy say a prayer for all the veterans.

  13. Patrick, how cool to share on Veterans Day! This is an excellent #WW share. I'm so glad you did insert yourself in the picture because I had no idea that you served in the Navy. Let me say a personally to you, "Thank you, my friend!" I'm humbled and grateful for your sacrifice to this country and my family. God bless you! And, thank you for visiting me today!
