To all my comrades in arms, thank you for the support that you have giving to this Country. I know this nation has asked you to sacrifice and you have grabbed your boots and arms and only question was where to be. That is something that separates us from our founding fathers. They were fighting for freedom. We defend freedom. “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” ~Thomas Paine <!--QSO--><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /> I am Proud to be identified as your Brother! For my other Non-Military Friends and family, Please honor the sacrifice that we have made, not by gifts or parades. But by verbally saying Thank You to a vet. We did not serve for the parades and the material things; we served to protect you and our families from whatever tyranny there is. It is an HONOR to serve this great nation of ours. To Protect Freedom.
