In today's post I just want to take a moment to say thank you to all of our veterans. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. You may or may not know who I am but I am eternally grateful to you. You have blessed my life by being so willing to fight for my rights. If it weren't for some of you I probably would not be here today, so I thank you for that. I personally know many people who have served in the past and who are currently serving and each one of you has had an influence on my life. I love you all and I am so thankful for your service for myself, my family and my country.
I would like to personally thank the men in my life who have served and blessed my life by doing so. And I just want to apologize I know I left a lot of people out but know I am still thinking of you and am grateful for you!
First off, I would like to thank my 94 year old grandpa who served many years ago with his brother Clyde. My grandpa is one of the people who has touched my life the most. He is my hero and I am so thankful for his service to my family and his country. He is a very brave, strong and great man. I love you Grandpa "Pete" you are incredible.
Secondly I would like to also thank my mom's dad aka my grandpa for his service. I might not know much about what you did but I am so thankful for you and serving our country. You were a great grandpa to me and I feel you close to me everyday. I wish I could of gotten to know you a little better. But again, thank you for your service to your family and your country! You are a great man.
