On this Veterans day I’m personally honoring my great-grandfather Joseph Pettey Littlefield, a veteran of the Civil War.  He was a member of Co. C, 9th Maine Regiment.  He was wounded at the battle of Cold Harbor and sent home to Maine to die. He died on Sep 3, 1864 from his massive wounds and other complications.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  2. Thank you so much, it’s important to honor those who fight and give their lives for their countries ..
