Blue-Bellies and Gray-Backs*

Joseph P. YoungThis is National Military Appreciation Month.

I’d like to take the opportunity to offer my thanks and appreciation to all those serving and who have served.

Pictured here is my grandmother’s great-uncle. He was a Corporal serving in the Civil War, representing the Union, in the 13th Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Infantry. The story goes that he lost his arm during the war.

Again, I’m thankful to all who served currently and long, long ago.

God bless America.
