Special Edition - Way Back When-esday

Timeline: 1996
Age: 22

Thank you to all the veterans who are serving and who have served our country. Kris entered into the Navy after high school and served 5yrs as a Marine Medic. I did not know Kris during this time, but he's got some great stories to tell. I am so proud of him for this accomplishment!!

I dug out some of his memorabilia from his Navy days.

Look how young he looks. As he would say, he's a hot mammer jammer. :)

He's so serious in this one.

His dog tags.


A couple of restaurants in town are letting veterans eat free, so we're going out tonight to celebrate Kris and his time in the military. We love you Kris!!!

Oh, and a BIG shout out to my brother-in-law John! Today is his birthday! Happy Birthday John! He's gonna kill me for posting this pic. :) The story behind this picture is it was taken a couple of days before my wedding, which John was in, and he emailed me this picture with the subject line "new look for the wedding". I did not want this fu manchu in my wedding album, so he got rid of it, thank goodness. :)
