I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
I am humbled each day at the thought of men and women that are willing to sacrifice everything, so that people they do not even know can enjoy freedoms we take for granted. My prayer of gratitude today is for all my relatives that were willing to make that sacrifice; all the students I have had in school that continue this country's great military tradition; all the friends I have that serve, as well as those perfect strangers I will never know. Your service leaves me speechless...and eternally grateful. God Bless You and your families and God Bless the United States of America.
