God Bless those brave military who sacrificed life and limb to protect our country and our Constitution. Thanks also to those now serving. Yesterday was the birthday of the Marine Corps and would like to honor them with this beautiful hooked rug by Donna Hrkman. First time I saw this piece my eyes filled with tears, beautiful work Donna.
Below is my wonderful step-father (Edward C. "Pat" Patterson) who served in the Navy and was on the Presidential staff assigned to Camp David during the years when Eisenhower was President, then John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
