Thanks to all our Vets!

I wanted to take this time today, not to talk hunting issues but rather to thanks our vets for the great job they’ve done keeping our country the best place to live in all of the world!

Despite issues with this or that, the bottom line is we wouldn’t have this luxury of debate without the dedicated individuals who have protected this country for the last several centuries. Leaving Church today, I was reminded to thank the vets that have served our country as they all too often get their service taken for granted. I’m ashamed to admit, even though my family served through several wars, I also take our freedom for granted.

So, to all of our vets, I say “Thank you very much” for the years of dedication that we took for granted! I hope you are able to enjoy the very freedom you fought for this memorial day weekend!  For those of you that care, there is a great organization called Disabled Veterans Of America ( http://www.dav.org/ ) that needs your support in any way you can. These are the disabled veterans that were the very people who fought for us but now need our support.
