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!

Forget the politics of AMERICA’S conflicts, regardless of your personal views on whether america should or should not be involved in any wars around the world. We should still be SUPPORTIVE and PROUD of our brave Men and Women who do not make the decisions to go to war or why we go to war or how we fight the wars. They just answer the call to serve and they are ready to pay the ultimate price of life or limb in the defence of this great country we call AMERICA. They are TRUE AMERICAN HEROES! And we as americans at the very least should THANK them. Take the opportunity to thank a solider/veteran here on this page or tell a story of your solider/veteran or brag about your branch of service. SEMPER-FI. To my fellow brothers and sisters I simply and humbly say THANK YOU! for I know of your sacrifices and of your families sacrifices. To my fellow americans I say sleep well for some where in the world there is a member of the armed forces at the ready to protect and defend your way of life.
