Thank You To Our Military Men And Women

oh America, America, I love you. I do not love what greedy, uncaring people have done to you but I love you and I love the men and women who fought for our freedom and those who still fight for our freedom even when those against them are people who should be fighting for them. 

Freedom…often taken for granted, often misused, often used to do horrific things…and it all comes with a price paid on the backs of our men and women in the military.

This video takes me back to a time where patriotism was held high. We had that also when 9/11 occurred and we seem to have strayed from it again. Freedom…what so many take for granted as long as their lives are doing good…does not come free and must be upheld all the time, not part of the time.

Thank you THANK YOU for continuing to fight, continuing to love our freedom and our country and for fighting for yourselves when you are not treated right. When I see our men and women enlist in the military and are ready to do what it takes to keep our freedom, it puts a knot in my throat and tears in my eyes …a feeling of such pride that some have not lost what our ancestors fought for all these years. 

From the Revolutionary War up to today, preserving our freedom and helping others gain their freedom has been paramount to our military. Our men and women go in knowing they may not come out and yet they still do it. They are willing to give all for this precious thing called freedom.

Only we the people can surrender our freedom to those that want to destroy it whether it is here at home or abroad. We have to be willing to stand up and say what is important. When we are complacent, we are complicit to what goes on. These men and women have stood for our freedom and are continuing to do so and we should stand for them.

My heart is so thankful for all that have fought, have died, are Veterans, are fighting and will be fighting to preserve and save our freedom. I am so proud of our men and women in uniform and so ashamed that they do not get treated with the respect and honor they deserve. I remember the days of Vietnam when my friends sat and watched the draft numbers come out to see if they were going. Many went and enlisted anyway and fought with all they had and then came home to be spat upon by those they were fighting for.

So, I say to you men and women in the military, to you Veterans, to those who have lost loved ones in the military, thank you from my heart and my home for believing in freedom, for standing up for what should be done no matter how people may treat you, for being the warriors you are because without you, this country would fall. Know that you are loved by us and from our home. We salute you with honor and pride.
