|My Daddy :o)|
Brian (my future better half) and his Twin Brother both serve in the U.S. Navy. Brian is a Corpsman and his Twin Brother is an M.A. There is not a day that goes by that I do not appreciate the fact that his brother has been overseas for 3 years and that everyday people I know have to say goodbye to their loved ones who are deploying.

I am not asking anyone to go out and join the service or stop doing whatever it is you do everyday. All I ask is that for one moment today take a look around and appreciate everything you have, and thank all those who have served and lost their lives to give it to you. Thank those that you see in uniform out to dinner with their families... you never know if it is their last dinner before they deploy. Appreciate what is sacrificed daily by these men and women and their families, without any intention of being repaid or glorified. They do it because it's what they feel is right and it is in their blood.
For all those out there who had to say goodbye to their Husband, Wife, Mother, or Father I THANK YOU for your service as well. It is not easy to be in that position either.
