The 4th is always a special holiday for me. I think about our vets and current forces even more on the 4th than I do on memorial day. The 4th is all about freedom, and you can't have freedom without the men and women that have sacrificed for us. Thank God for our past and present heroes. As most of you know, my dad died recently. this is my first 4th without him, and when that day rolls around I always reflect on the wars my father risked his life in, as did so many fine men and women. I would like for all past and present forces to post here so that I and others if they choose, can express our gratitude for them. Plus rep for you, and I don't mean that in a lighthearted manner - I truly am grateful for your service. May God bless you all.
