Happy Veterans Day

 On this special Veterans Day.....
God Bless the brave men and women past and present who put their lives on the line for us.



WASHINGTON — Before the United States was born, there was a Marine Corps. For the last 236 years Marines have fought tirelessly to preserve the freedom of the United States and the traditions of the Corps.



Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War 1. 



Veterans Day has always had special for me, because my grandfather William Preston Williams fought overseas  for his country.  He returned with Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD,) a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma.


Maybelline's contribution during World War ll, included promoting War Bonds, raising moral and honoring all branches of the Service.



 This Maybelline ad says - Save your money the safest way - Buy U.S. War Bonds Regularly.


Read more about my grandfather, Preston and my father Bill, during the Wars, in The Maybelline Story and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind It. 

This weekend I will be posting a video of my cooking segment at AZTV, making Frances' Depression Era, Chocolate Icebox Cake last month.

Also stay tuned for video and pictures of my Laguna Beach presentation at Laguna Beach Books hosted by the Association of American University Women last weekend.
