Grimsleys are no strangers to patriotism or respect for our government and the symbol of our freedom, the United States American Flag.  We are grateful to our parents for those values.

Dad served his country in the Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict Gene served his country in the Army during the Vietnam war.  His son, Scott, worked fulltime for the Army for several years, recruiting young men and women to join the armed forces.

The Sunday After

Gene's daughter, Karen, and her husband, Scott LaRoche, are both in active duty, currently stationed in Texas.  We solicit your thoughts and prayers for their commitment and safety through what promises to be a turbulent road ahead.

Grandpa William Koobs  served in World War I (Grandpa Grimsley had an artificial leg which prohibited his service). All the uncles served their country: Uncles Claire, Jack, Roger and Jerry Koobs; Uncles Wendell and Vernon Grimsley.  Uncle Roger's daughter Cyndi has made a career out of serving her country.  I'm sure there are more, forgive me for not mentioning you by name.

Thank you, Dad, Gene, Scott, Karen, and Scott, and all the rest, for your years of service protecting the freedom of not just our family, but for EVERY SINGLE American citizen.  We are so proud of you and are forever in your debt.  And most of all, Thank you, God, for giving us the freedom in the first place.
