Thank You Veterans!


The military has always been a part of my life and, for the first twelve years of my life, it was all I knew.  My great-grandfather, who was more like a grandfather to me fought in both World War II and the Korean War.  Both of my grandfathers were Army veterans and my father was in the Army for 20 years.  Aside from them, I have uncles, cousins, and plenty of friends who have served and still serve in the military.  I respect and admire them for doing so and I want to use today as an opportunity to thank them for that.  Happy Veteran’s Day to you all!
