Veteran's Day 2010

Visiting my veteran grandparents (WWII Navy) at their VA home in Walsenburg, CO.

Very cool, thanks for sharing!! I love seeing other hijabis that have military family as well, if just because we seem to be so few and far inbetween. I have family members that served in Vietnam, Korea, and Iraq.

I think there are more out there but I think some people are quiet about it because they view U.S. military as controversial in the Muslim world. I don't think I have any family that served in Korea or Iraq. My brother was in the Naval reserves, and I have an uncle that went to Vietnam. I also have relatives from WWI, Civil War and Revolutionary War but I'm not sure about 1812 or other conflicts, though it seems likely.
