This is the Veteran in our lives. Isn't he handsome? He served during the Vietnam Era, but thankfully never got deployed over there. He was in the Army for 6 years. His decorations were, National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Sharpshooter (Rifle). He was 18 when this picture was taken, if I'd known him then he probably wouldn't have given me the time of day, I would have been 12. Praise the Lord I met him much later, he is the love of my life.
