Today we solute and honor all of the men and women who have served our country. I especially want to mention my grandfather who fought for our country’s freedom in World War II. He was lucky enough to make it home safely, have a family and watch it grow, and pass away at the age of 93 peacefully in his bed with his whole family around him. He knew how blessed he was…and so do I. I also know there are many soldiers who are not as fortunate. That is why today, Veteran’s Day, is so important. Today we thank, honor and salute all soldiers, past and present, for their tremendous sacrifice and bravery. Thank you for fighting for our freedom. I am proud to be an American!
