A Proud Plaque

Take a look at this website. They are offering a plaque for military families to be displayed outside their home. The plaques are personalized with pictures, branch of service and gender and they look gorgeous! Ten percent of the purchase price will be donated to one of the listed military support organizations, and we are now one of those on the list!! There is also a multiple plaque discount which is good for someone like me with 2 sons serving, or for those who want to buy extras for grandparents, in-laws, or other family members

Here's a quote from the website:

A Proud Plaque

This plaque is intended to be displayed outside of the home of the family of a United States Military service man or woman.

The idea stems from a simple but bold placard that the mother of Senator John Warner from Virginia had placed on their door as her son served in World War II. This was noted in a recent New York Times article on Senator Warner and his distinguished military career.

An excerpt from the September 17, 2006 article reads;

Mr. Warner's convictions ……. stem largely from his personal experience, beginning with his Navy service in World War II. Hanging with the photographs on his office wall is a worn, small placard that his mother displayed on the door of their Washington home from 1944 to 1946:

''There's a Man from this family in the Navy.''
