Gratitude for Those Who Serve Our Country

Today we honor those who have chosen to dedicate their lives to preserving our freedom.  This country is indeed the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Much gratitude to all those who lost their lives while serving our country, to those who have come home and are struggling to find peace, to those still fighting for our freedom, and to all the family members whose lives are impacted by their loved one's willingness to serve.
