A Veteran's Day Thank You

The Land of the Free.  That's where I reside.  And today is a day to say thank you to those that have made that possible.  There are many in my own family that have served (and are currently serving) and I also have several friends that have made an impact on me by serving our country.

I do have my own very personal hero and on this Veteran's Day I say, thank you Daddy for your many faithful years of serving our country.

Today is also a day of remembering those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and I especially remember my friend Matthew who just over a year ago gave his life.  It's hard to believe it's already been over a year and we miss you more than words can express.  

I encourage all of you to take a moment today and visit the Freeman Project website to see how you can help carry on a soldier's dream.

I also encourage all of you to take a few moments and watch the video below, entitled "Her Son's Gift."  

On a day like today, the words "Thank You" just don't seem like enough.
