    I would like to take a few moments to write and express my gratitude to my brothers and sisters that have served are serving and those who will. We carry the solemn task of showing our gratitude to these men and women not just today but everyday we get the oppurtunity to see them. We all enjoy the things that this country provides no matter what political stripes we bare. We enjoy these things because of the blood spent to keep this great country here. So as you enjoy the barbeque the games the beer remember those who stand on the wall and allow you that freedom.
