Thank You

While I certainly don't agree with the political side of the war in Iraq, that in no way interferes with the deep gratitude I have for my soldiers. 

After all, as Mark Twain wisely said "Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it."

Leaving your life and family behind to serve your country is no easy task. I know you do it with  heavy hearts. Yet you are proud of your country. Willing to fight, and to die, for what you believe in. Much of what we have, is due to what you have given up.

To the Grandfathers, Fathers, Uncles, Brothers, Grandmothers, Mothers, Aunts and Sisters, to those who have served or are currently serving our country, to the families and spouses who support them and to all those who have given their life for this great country, thank you.

And to my Uncle Jeff, in Iraq right now, God's Speed. We miss you. We love you. Thank you.

Jeff

My Uncle Jeff (no worries on the fish, he released it!)

  1. I was just looking at that picture in the Cordova Times again yesterday. That was a wonderful moment when he walked into that airport. Please give him a hug from us, thank him, and remind him how thankful we are for him and for what he does for all of us.
