Proud of My Men!

 How proud I am of my father who served our country during WWII. My husband served in the Persian Gulf War, as a Hebrew linguist. He graduated with honors and was immediately sent to the NSA (National Security Agency.)

Darren received a Joint Service Achievement Medal for something he did. But, he can't tell me or "He'd have to kill me." LOL. Seriously, I have never found out what he did to get this medal, because it is "TOP SECRET" funny huh.

We still had a big party for him in his honor. I de-
cided to make a wall hanging quilt for him to place
this medal on. So if you look close to the quilt you
will actually see that I cut up some of his uniforms
and used that material for parts of the quilt. The stars
running along the bottom are the different scraps of uni-
forms. He was totally surprised by the
party and quilt. I love my sweet husband of 22 yrs.
And so proud to be his wife. (My husband is the one
on the left.)
