Honored Heroes...

I come from a family of Navy men...all the way back to my Great Grandfather Philip Telesphore Carpentier, WWI Navy Veteran. I understand Memorial Day is really a day to honor all the men and women who lost their lives fighting for this great country we live in...but I wanted to remember all my family (and friends) who were so brave and courageous. I'm so proud to be their granddaughter, daughter, step-sister and friend...thank you from the bottom of my heart:
Telesphore Philip Carpentier - US Navy, WWII, Korea, Vietnam (my father's father)
Charles Peter Roemer - US Navy, Lieutenant Commander (how cool is that?) WWII, Korea, Vietnam (my mother's father)
Charles was a fighter pilot...flew everything the Navy owned.
John Louis Carpentier - US Navy, Vietnam and The Cuban Missile Crisis (my Father). My parents met while stationed in father was the mechanic who fixed all the Naval aircraft my Grandfather Charles flew.
Tim Harshman - Army, Gulf War (Step-Brother)
Mike Tuckner - Army, Gulf War (Friend)
Veronica Garcia - Army, Iraq War (Friend)
Cody Low-Fluery - Army, Boot Camp begins in a few days (Friend's son)
Happy Memorial Day...
