Veterans Day is a special day to honor all Veterans who served in the military of the United States of America. Thousands of men and women have served our country…some who never came back. Others who served are crippled mentally, physically or both. No matter what a person does or did in the military their lives were forever changed. My 7 year old granddaughter Anns Lee Pelton did this sketch in honor of Veterans. She won 1st place at her school in a ceremony honoring Veterans. As a patriotic young lady, she is proud to share this with all our members who are Veterans or have family members who are Veterans.
My granddaughter was named partially in memory of Robert E. Lee. Her great-grandfather was named Robert E. Lee Cox. Her great-great-grandfather Abraham George Washington Cox was 15 and his dad Abraham was 51 when they both enlisted on the same day in 1862.
