Patriotism is not as revered in our Nation as it once was. Personally I was named after both of my father's brothers who died fighting the Nazis. (My mother lost only one.) I endeavor to be worthy of their sacrifice and to fight for the ideals they gave their all trying to protect.
Perhaps some of you may wish to take a moment and thank the men and women that are serving us, far away from the cook outs, and pool parties, and their families.
Let's Say Thanks
