As I give my thanks for being an American, I want to give special thanks
to all our active Military and our Veterans
It is because of their courage and strength that we are able to celebrate Independence Day every year. They are our unsung heroes, the men and women who are willing to lay down their lives to guard our tomorrows. Beverly Melasi-Haag
To some, our Veterans are faceless silhouettes casting a broad shadow over enemy terrain. “No one I know,” some say, and shrug as they go about their business; never thinking twice about the sacrifices these men and women make on a daily basis.
Well I say they should not remain faceless, and that it’s time people start to care about who’s out there fighting to keep them safe. So, let me introduce you to my Military Family:
My dad, Joe, who is 93 years old, served in the United States Air Force as a glider pilot during World War II. He was a young kid fresh out of Henry Ford Trade School when he answered the call to arms the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. He is still a member of the Yankee Air Force in Romulus Michigan.
Let us never forget who we are sending into battle. My children: Joe (Navy), Mike (Marines), and Alicia (Army). And now my grandsons, Cory (Army) Jordan (Marines), and Tom “Big T” (Marines).

And what about you Dear Readers? Is it your children, your neighbor’s kid(s), your dad, your mom, your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your best friend? Whoever they are, and wherever they are, “THANK YOU!”
