From Logan C. (Army Veteran)

To my brothers and sisters,

When you join the military you join a family.  You take on more responsibility than the average individual and are taught to excel in leadership.  I have made friends for life that I met in the military.  We have been through things that others will not understand and that is a bond we share.  It makes us who we are.  We volunteered to do the things we did and were proud to do each and every single one of them.

A picture of me and my friend in the pack shed before loading a plane to jump. We are sitting on a bench in full jump gear. Counting the parachutes & our equipment we were typically jumping with 120-150lbs of equipment on us. I usually jumped with a radio in my ruck sack.

Inside a C17 with two cannons. I was in an Airborne Artillery unit that actually dropped these 15,000lb cannons out of a plane with parachutes.

There were times in Iraq that the thermometer read 140 degrees out in the sun and about 115 in the shade.
