    God Bless All Of You

    I don't believe most people realize the sacrifice our soldiers and their families make to protect our country. To all of our brave men and women who are serving or have served their country, God Bless you all, and may he keep you safe.

    To My Soldier And The Others Who Fight Along Side You

    Soldiers are our heros who go out and fight the bad guys, but they are not bulit proof and they do not finish off the bad guy in 2 hours, like we see in the movies. Soldiers fight all day and through the night with nothing more then a gun, a prayer and each other. I am lucky...

    Never Forget ... Always Be Thankful

    Proud ...

    I grew up hearing about my Dad having served in Italy in WWII, and learned what it meant to serve this country and what sacrifices are made. I am grateful that there are still men and now, women, who still serve selflessly to protect our country. We are able to sleep at night...
