Although This Is a Day To Remember Those Who Gave Up Their Life For Us…….

I also always think of my girlfriends who did serve.
Walgreens 30 Ice
When my friend Kathy Comstock visited me in Wisconsin last summer this was her favorite piece I was working on,.

I made sure it was finished for my show. Kathy served in the United States Army and I see a link between the Army and the colors of this Ice Tapestry.

It also makes me think of my friend Pauline Frey Davy who served in the Air Force. The picture of her is on the flight line at Wurtsmith, AFB in Oscoda, MI. She also worked as a civilian for the Army for 27 years and was working for them when we met at a fabric dyeing class.

I am not sure what branch my friend Marge Hewitt served in? Everyone wants to be Marge when they grow up.
I am grateful they were willing to serve to preserve our freedom and grateful they all were able to come home after their service.
I am honored to know all of these women.

That is cool to honor women in service. I had a friend who was the only woman I knew who served in WWII. I always hoped that she would write about her experiences. She was the neatest person. She came home got her masters and then got married had kids....she took care of her husband and her elderly parents till they died....then she went to law school in her furies....she was a lawyer when I met her.....she worked in the law for over 20 years. I think she lived to 93 years....a really cool woman.

Thanks Kay for the comments about Women in Service to America (that's a web site and a memorial in Arlington Cemetary). There were so many, who served, that never got any recognition. During the Revelutionary War and the Civil War, some women dressed as men to join in.
