This is to all those who have given their lives to protecting others, from threats known and unknown. I don’t care who you are or where you came from, but risking your own life for the lives of others is the definition of heroism and deserves recognition.
Today is the day to remember all of the fallen US soldiers. Let’s not forget also those who are currently risking their lives right now.
To all of these people I’ve mentioned: Thank You
You don’t have to support the war or the politics behind it, but you have to support the men and women who fight in them so others don’t have to. There are few things that anger me me more than to see so-called “anti-war” protesters direct their contempt toward the soldiers that have to fight in those wars. They’re doing it wrong.
