I am remembering those of you who have served in the American armed forces. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be participating in all these things that I cherish and enjoy. If it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t be able to walk around without fear. I have a feeling that our country would not look the same if it weren’t for you.
There are people in this world who hate the fact that we are free here in America, those who want to steal kill and destroy what God has blessed us with. It is you who serve/served in the U.S. military that have stood in the way of that destruction. It is you that keep them at bay. If it weren’t for you, those who hate us would be at my house or church instead of just in the news.
I’m guessing there are many of you around me and I’m not fully aware of that fact. I personally know several of you. Sometimes I don’t know you but I see you when I’m out (maybe it’s your uniform, a hat or a license plate that causes me to realize your service).
To you who have or do serve in the armed forces of our nation, Thank you. I appreciate your service. If you didn’t sacrifice, it would have to be me who left my home and family. If you didn’t place your body in harms way, I would have to. Thank you and God bless.
