    It seems such a staid and serious card, but then I don't suppose the 'sick and wounded soldiers' were feeling at all happy about it being Christmas. It was nice to have been remembered, though.

  6. THAT is totally cool. It is amazing to think the 100th anniversary of WW1 is nearly here. My Grandfather was drafted during WW1. Dad fought in WW2–he was imprisoned in Germany at a Nazi prison camp. Uncle Jody fought in Vietnam, and Uncle Kelly fought in the Korean War. My brother in law drew a line in the sand, and my nephew is in the army.

    It is hard to believe nearly 100 years has passed since Grandpa was in WW1. He told some gruesome stories.
