Thank you seems like two words that don't say enough to all who have fought for our freedom, our lives, and the country we have today.
My grandpa served for 26 years. He was a Senior Master Sergeant for the US Air Force, and on the day we was buried was given full military honors. Papa was proud of his time in service, and proud of our country!
My dad was active in the Marines, and served overseas as well. He likes to share his stories (though at this age we don't always know what is the full truth) and he was honored to fight for his future children.
George, my uncle, was also in the military and served in Vietnam! He met my aunt before leaving, and they were penpals while he was away :)
