The Battleship Texas served sailors in WWI and WWII.

La Porte, Texas is a small town near Galveston Bay plays an important part in American History. The San Jacinto Battles Grounds is a historic attraction that kept up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife agency.

The photo of the Battleship Texas was taken during our housing hunting expeditions to Houston (believe me we had more than a few expeditions).  I added in the Mexican soldier (played so well by hubby) to portray “endurance”. Endurance is a hardcore ingredient when it comes to the making of American history.

The battleship tour will aid you in imagining the life sailors endure during the wars, especially in comparison with today’s sailors. Imagine your only source of news from home depended solely on snail mail? I am sure my iPhone toting teen would find that barbaric.

Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Month


May is designated for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. I am happy to be a part of US ARMY Garrison Hohenfels event on Thursday May 24, 2012. I cannot wait for everyone to taste my Pad Thai.

           Over the years Asian American and Pacific Islanders have contributed to shaping United States history. Many Asian/Pacific Islander Americans fought in wars against oppression and have been loyal allies through many of America‘s long hard years.

         At the API event anyone who attends can experience the culture and values of the Asian/Pacific Islander lifestyle. The event displays the cultures of each country participating, as well as having samples of food and cultural entertainment.
