WHEN I WAS 10 YEARS OLD, I WON THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS MISS BUDDY POPPY TITLE IN HAWAII. THIS VIDEO IS DEDICATED TO ALL OF THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT SERVED DEFENDING OUR FREEDOM. BUYING BUDDY POPPIES PROVIDES FUNDS TO SHOW OUR VETERANS THAT WE CARE. THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII SIGNED A DOCUMENT AUTHORIZING THE SALE OF POPPIES FOR THIS PURPOSE. MY GRANDFATHER SERVED IN THE ARMY DURING WWI AND MY FATHER LANDED IN NORMANDY ON D-DAY DURING WWII. THEY INSTILLED IN ME THE KNOWLEDGE OF JUST HOW MUCH SO MANY HAVE PAID TO ENSURE US THE FREEDOM THAT WE TEND TO TAKE FOR GRANTED AT TIMES. I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN AND I HONOR AND APPRECIATE THOSE THAT SERVE IN THE MILITARY. EVERY AMERICAN REALLY SHOULD DO THE SAME.
