I am leaving out the stats for the current Global War on Terror due to the fact that it would be a disservice to those in theater. However they are no less important than any other veteran.

To all of my fellow Veterans, and the men, and women currently serving THANKS for all hard work, determination, and dedication. Often times people don't undertsand what sacrifices the man, woman, and their families go through when someone is deployed. For the sacrifices I say thanks the the husbands, wives, sons, daughters, and loved ones left behind. This shouldn't just be about the Veterans. It should be a day of recognizing what anyone connected to a member of the military does for this great country.


THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO.
