Were it not for the service and sacrifice of so many soldiers who believed in our great country and its form of Govertment,we would not even have a thing called the internet because countries like China and the old Soviet Union would not have allowed it growth.
I work in the hospitality industry and whenever i see a veteran with a pin or patch or baseball cap showing he/she served,no matter what war or capacity,i make an effort to say thank you for your service. Many were drafted and HAD to go serve,but many many more enlisted of their own accord.
I recently had the honor to meet a few of the soldiers who were the original "Band of Brothers" and said thank you for what you did. They as well as many others that i have said the same remark almost always say the same thing.
They say that they were just doing their job,and that the real heroes or people to be thanked are those that gave the ultimate sacrifice........their lives.
If it wasn't for the soldier we would not have the freedoms we now enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!1
