Today is the 40th Anniversary that Marine Sgt David Gonzales went miss in LAOS. David was 23 years old when him and his crew were shot down in a USMC Helicopter during Vietnam War on a special mission. He was from Venura, CA. You are probably wondering how Sgt David Gonzales is special to me. Well, you see everyday I honor this HERO. I wear his name on my wrist each and everyday! I have a POW/MIA bracelet!
My grandpa Adee was a veteran he was injured in WWII at the age of 24!
I am so grateful for all the men and woman that serve our Armed Forces. Thank you for keep us safe and making the choice to serve our country! You are all heroes.
So in honor of Sgt. David Gonzales and all the other soldiers. I am making cards to send of to Operation Write Home. I hope you can join me.
Also I want to alert you to a new blog on my side bar of Links- Freedom Love. This is the blog of Miss College Ink. On her side bar if you link for free you can help Iraq and Afghanistan Vets! Also, if you read her blog you learn that last Saturday she got engaged to her Airman! It was a beautiful proposal make sure to read it! SMILE
Congratulations! We are so happy for you both!
I salute you Sgt David Gonzales!
