A Little Appreciation

November 11th, 2008

Being veteran’s day I’d like to express my deep gratitude to all who are serving and have served in the U.S. Military. My grandpa and my brother are among these wonderful people. My grandfather fought in World War II and my brother spent 10 years in the service during which he spent time in Korea and served 2 tours in Iraq.

Thanks Alex! And Thanks to all of you who fight for our freedom and the freedom of those around the world!
