Today we celebrate the actions of our military forces. I come from a proud line of veterans. My father was in the Navy. I know that the time he served was very influential to who he was and who he became. I know that there are many more military veterans that have become very influential in my life. I wish you all peace and calm. I can only imagine what life was like during any combat or even simple training. It isn’t an easy thing to do, knowing your life could be snuffed out in a blink of an eye. If I could change anything about my life it would have been to enlist right out of high school. I know that it would have kept me a little more disciplined in my early 20s. However, for whatever reason I did not have the courage to enlist. Thank you; each and every one for your sacrifice, loyalty, and love. I will not forget.
