I am the son of a retired Army Airborne Grunt, I followed in his foot-steps and I am proud to be a part of what freedoms these men and women so honorably defended. You are all a inspiration to the "warriors" of today and the future defenders of our freedoms tomorrow. It takes a special person to go half a world away and put a foot up the *** of the enemy. I thank you for all you have done; and I was willing to give my life to uphold all that you have provided. You have been my inspiration to make the commitment for 7 years. God bless and "Ne Desit Virtus".
