I Am A Proud American.

I come from a military family. My dad is Navy and my little brother is Marine Corps and I was set and ready to enlist into the Army. I am proud of our country, this land our forefathers sought to defend and keep for their future generations. I do not like our government but I love our land.

I too come from a long *Proud line of Generations of Military...Many gave their lives for our freedom...Thank you for posting~many veterans in my family...My Mom's younger brother was killed,we have the flag that draped his coffin...I never met him sadly, my Mom reminded me of him by her loving stories..Father was wounded received the purple heart...

Thank you and your family for sacrificing so much that we may reap the benefits and hopefully many will honor them with our actions and words of reverence and memories of the brave men and women who have given much for this great country.

Tell your family thank you for serving and to yourself, thank you for "serving" this country in a way that is also important ;)

Thank you but I unfortunately was unable to join.

I know, but you are "serving" in other words, helping, by sharing your stories and showing people that being an American is something to be proud of :) You are "serving" but in a different way. That is more than a lot of people do

Thank you. I've never thought of it that way. It was always just something that I thought a true American would do.

I agree with everything you said. God bless you, your family, and all of our service men and women.

Thank you but I unfortunately was unable to join.

I read that. Nevertheless, your heart is in the right place, and we do still have men and women risking everything for our liberties daily.

Anchors Away to your father (from a Navy vet), Semper Fi to your brother, and "May those caissons go rolling along", to you.

I appreciate that. Thank you but I forgot to mention in my story that I was unable to join. I am still very proud of our troops and their sacrifices though. I will continue to support them for as long as I can.
