We live in the most privileged, most free, most full-of-opportunity country on earth, but that comes at a high cost -- the lives of many brave men and women, who fight not only to preserve our freedoms but also to help the oppressed across the world. All my grandfathers were veterans of either WWII or the Korean War, as were Dan's grandfathers. Our brother-in-law Zack is a Marine who served 3 tours in Iraq. They are just a very few of the thousands who have given of their time, strength, and even their life's blood for the cause of freedom. Thank you, to all veterans who are willing to sacrifice so much. We do not take your service for granted. Heavenly Father, please bless them with strength and bring them safely home!
