Proud

Thank you for serving and sharing your story. My heart swelled with pride as I read each line. My father who died at 49 served in WWII and we have a strong military background, 1- brother in Dessert Storm, another in Vietnam, a 3rd brother served during peace time and my son, in Iraq and Afghanistan. God bless you and God bless America.

Many thanks

My sincere thanks and gratitude to Mr. White and all of those who served then and serve now to protect our freedom. We all owe much to these brave individuals who served selflessly to assure that freedom for generations to come.

AMEN !

Well said, freespeaker. Bill Hiemer
