Mike Essig , I respectfully disagree about the thank you for serving comment…
We as a Country “Proud to be an American” is for one reason ,and that be the brave men and women that gave their time to allow this luxury to each of us .
FREEDOM ! I had three sons , I would have been honored if they had served, my Father was a Marine. They weren’t required to enlist , and a few medical issues probably would have suppressed their want .
My nephew as a junior in High school is enlisting , I’m so proud of him . I’ll thank him when he leaves,and embrace him when he comes home !
Never enough thanks to our Vets !
