Final Salute - An absolute must read...

This is one of the most incredible and touching stories I have ever read. So fitting for this Veteran's Day weekend. It's a long story but so worth the read. I believe that every single American, whether they support the war effort or not, should read this. Make sure you have plenty of tissues handy.

God bless our soldiers and all veterans. Each one has contributed to our freedoms that we take for granted every day. Some have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can drive our cars, rake our yards, watch Sunday Nascar and play with our kids. Every single day, no matter how "bad" our day is, we should remember that somewhere there is a soldier putting everything on the line so we can have "bad" days. Our country is what it is today because of the soldiers.

God bless the families of our soldiers and veterans. They too have sacrificed so much just so we have the freedom to live. My heart aches for the families that have given the ultimate sacrifice just so I can type on this silly computer and speak my mind. I am eternally grateful and will never forget.

We all take our freedoms for granted. We get up each day and gripe about the weather, our job, the bills, etc. After reading this article, my goal is to thank God every morning that my eyes open. Not just for my life and my family but for the brave soldiers and their families. God Bless them all.
