2011 Memorial Day – Veterans

Yates and Allied Families


Wilkerson and Allied Families

On every Memorial Day I remember all of my family members who have passed on. Not all of the people in this collage have passed, but many of them have.  I feel it’s important to thank our veterans whenever we can, and so I post this picture and thank our family members for their service.

If you are a member of either family and have served in the military, please come by and leave a comment with your branch of service and era in which you served.
