Retiring Soon

My husband is retiring from his 20 years of service in the navy in a couple of months. It is a great privilege for him and for us, his family that he serve the country for years. His Dad also served in the army and fought in WW2 (he is now 87 years old), and two of his uncles also served, one died in Germany and was buried there.  The theme for this week's photo hunt is veterans/military. I took this photo when we first came here in Korea during the Independence day celebration last year.
Happy photo hunting everyone!

  14. Wow, malapit na palang mag retire si John. At last makakapag settle down na rin kayo sa bahay nyo sa Virginia. Anong balak nyo pag retire ni John. Balak nyo bang mag negosyo? Hindi naman makaka support nang pamilya ang maliit na kinikita sa pagbablog. Hindi naman lahat nang blogger ay katulad ni John Chow na kumikita daw nang average of $20,000. a month. Sa kanya ako unang natutong mag blog. Sabagay maganda rin ang mga naging experiences nyo dahil sa trabaho ni John na nadestino kayo kung saan saang lugar. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
