I’m Proud To Be Blogger Prompt #BehindTheBlogger

When I first saw this post I knew exactly what I was going to write about. I’m Proud To Be an American!


My Great uncle Attilio fought in World War II and was a Prisoner of War. He was captured during the Battle of The Bulge. He was kept at Stalag 9B. He was a Private and was in the camp for 147 days. He was captured at age 32. 3 years younger then I am now. During this time my grandfather and other uncles were also fighting in the war. They were sent home and that is how my parents were born and how I was born. Without them I would not be here. I would not have the freedom to do what I want. I can remember the gun salute at his funeral and all the times we drove to Maryland to visit him. He was a great man and I respected him greatly. I still do. I have pride in my Country because I know the sacrifices that soldiers make to protect us. The Fourth of July is not about fireworks or picnics. It is about being together with our family and celebrating that we are free. Free to have a picnic and free to set off fireworks. God Bless our troops and God Bless my Country. I’m Proud To Be an American!
