JJ_Greta_Kentucky DerbyIf you have been following along for years on this blog or on my social media, you will know I have a very special place in my heart for WWII Veterans. Sir JJ Witmeyer, who was born and raised in New Orleans and lives in Harahan, is one that I am honored to call my friend. Whether we end up at the French Consulates house, attend a start-studded event at the WWII Museum or just go to lunch, we are certainly like peas and carrots. Some things are meant to be, and last weekend I was honored to attend the Kentucky Derby with “My Knight” as he was an invited guest of Rick Porter, the owner of Normandy Invasion.

You can read a lot more about this event and all the news articles over at my other blog, Hooah Wife and Friends.
