I have been intending to write this all day, and now it is evening and I still haven't.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have served our country!
Most especially, though, to my Father, who has taught me everything I know about being a United States citizen, and still remains my greatest hero. He served our country from right after the Korean War through the Vietnam War, and into the peace at the end of the 1970s. We share a first and last name, and we share a deep respect for our Constitution and the Rights enumerated there.
To my brother in law, Ed, who served in both Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and who still remains a strong moral compass. Thank you!
To all my other friends who have served or continue to serve, thank you!!
To all those who I have never met, but have shed sweat, tears, and blood for our country, thank you!
Thank you to all those brave men and women who stand guard so that we may sleep in peace!
Thank you all!!!
