Memory Lane Stories

The Greatest Generation

I was blessed to have a father, and 3 uncles, from the greatest generation.
Thanks to that, I was brought up to with certain values, that too many today might think “old fashion.”
But they are not.

Keeping your word, being patriotic, putting your children’s needs before your own, always taking care of your family, and keeping your word, are just a few of the traits they passed on to me.
More to come…

Above is a picture of the 4 Banner brothers, 3 of which enlisted in WWII and one in the Korean War.
