Today we remember the brave individuals who sacrifice their time, well-being, and often their very lives to protect this great nation of ours. My own father was a career military man, serving 23 years including two abroad....one in Korea, the other in Vietnam....before retiring from the U.S. Army as a Lt. Colonel.
So to every enlisted person...be they in the air, on the ground, in the sea or on the coast....from cook to special forces...thank you. Your country is proud and grateful for all you do.
And a special thanks to my dad, who was "promoted to glory" late in 2009.....I miss you, and love you.
