    It wasn't until the fair came to my small town in Michigan and we put our hands over our hearts to pledge to flag at the rodeo when it hit me.... It hit me like a million bricks that this is MY soldier we're pledging too, along with my best friend (whose standing right beside me...

    Never Forget ... Always Be Thankful

      It Has Always Been The Soldier. It is the soldier, not the President who gives us democracy. It is the soldier, not the Congress who takes care of us. It is the soldier, not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press. It is the soldier, not the Poet...

    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...

    I'm around a lot of active duty soldiers

    and veterans and I never get tired of telling them thank you for their service to our country. It is amazing how they risk and sacrifice so much just so others can live a good life. I don't ever remember calling one a hero that he just accepted the compliment. They always say...

    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...

    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.
