I read a lot of books about war. I have read War As I Knew It by Patton, American Sniper by Kyle (an AWESOME book), Lone Survivor by Luttrell, Into the Fire by Meyer and a few others. Most contain some pretty rough language but the insight you get into these men and what they gave up to protect us make me grateful. Very grateful.
If you have the time, watch this 50 minute video about the 8th of November 1965.
Thank a Veteran on days other than Veteran's Day. Fly a flag on days other than Veteran's Day. Thank a soldier ever stinkin' chance you get. While I personally feel our country's government needs to go back to its roots, our military has always and will forever stand up to defend our freedom. We have a lot! We have a lot to be thankful for.
