WEEKLY THEME: METAL

I read metal and I thought of
MEDALS made of metal.

The two on the left belonged to my late father.
The first is a World War II Victory Medal, the second
was awared to my father for Honorable Service
While A Prisoner of War. The third medal
on the right had belonged to my late husband
for his Service in Viet Nam.

Talk about evoking the theme! This is very cool and really makes you think.

I had no idea what to do with this week's theme, so I'm afraid I did stretch it a bit in a lighter vein:

You should put those in a nice shadow box to display them. Such a touching take on the theme.

That is one of the best uses of metal that there is. Honoring service with medals is such a small repayment for their service but still it's a tangible statement of honor.

Mine is up, too.

Those medals are so impressive, but, more impressive is what they symbolise! Great idea for the prompt!

Perfect! Great photo for the theme - I don't know how you could have fit it more thoroughly! Our gratitude to your father and husband for their sacrifice and service.

WOW! This is the best post I've seen so far-- metal medals! Perfect! I did something that goes with yours, actually-- the machines that gave men such metals.

I hope you get a chance to visit and leave your link. :)
