Not what you think is it


So I love this day off also! And I love to BBQ with the family and have quality time with them just like everybody else. BUT as you all already know I am a Marine corps veteran I know all too well the fears and anxieties, the 12 hour training days, the loneliness of being aways from your family for sometimes years at a time. The sacrifices wifes and husbands, children and parents make to support their heroes. And I can not help but think and appreciate this day for what it is for. And the men and women who sacrificed so much to help protect this great country of ours. I have said this many times before, I also don’t agree 100% with this countries politics, with our involvements in conflicts, with our rules of engagement. What I do is respect, honor and appreciate all does who serve in our military for they do not make the rules, choose the fights, they just simply serve and are at the ready to give life or limb to protect us with out question. And for this I say   THANK YOU!   I RESPECT YOU!   I APPRECIATE YOU!   I SUPPORT YOU!   I NEED YOU!

This 18-year-old went in a PUNK from the south Bronx of New York and came out a U.S. MARINE, A BETTER MAN, A BETTER HUSBAND, A BETTER FATHER
