My grandfather served in the war flying a Blackhawk helicopter and received a purple heart for his services. Sadly he passed away before I was born, so I never got to meet the man that helped defend our country and grant us the freedoms that I take for granted every day. I have heard so many amazing stories about who he was and what he accomplished in life and I have no doubt that today’s warriors are of the same caliber.
I never got the chance to thank my grandfather for his service and dedication, but I do have the opportunity to thank you guys. So thank you and without your selflessness and strength, Americans would not have the opportunity to make advancements in technological, medical, humanitarian, environmental, and numerous other fields that make our country great.
Never forget that you are the reason America is great.
