Today is a day to honor those who have and do serve our country in the military. Our great nation was claimed through soldiers who were willing to wage a revolution to see the ideals they believed in become a reality. Since then countless men and women have given up their freedom in order to preserve and defend our nation. To those who have served, thank you for your willingness to give up comfort, safety, time with family, freedom and even your lives to allow me and my family to live in freedom. To those who are serving, thank you for defending us, may God bless, protect, and guide you!
