The depth of gratitude we owe to those who have sacrificed so much in order for us to be able to live the lives of immeasurable freedom, comfort, and luxury we enjoy today is quite simply impossible to calculate.
Today many thousands of men and women are continuing the tradition of putting their lives on the line to protect us.
Say a prayer and give some thought to the brave men and women who have given their all and for those who continue to stand between us and barbarism.
Please consider a donation to Soldier's Angels or some other worthy charity that helps ameliorate the loss and pain of their families.
