There is a picture of my father, as a toddler, dressed in an army dress uniform, saluting. Little did he know that years later, he would be serving in the Naval branch of the Armed Forces. He raised me to be grateful for the courage and honor of those who have served, for those who never came home and the armed forces in general.
To serve with courage does not mean a deficit of fear, rather a commitment to our country, our freedoms and the people.
Thank you to all who have served and are serving in the Armed Forces.
