On this very important day of remembrance I wanted to pay tribute to the many in my family who have served in our armed forces and risked everything to protect our way of life. My great uncle died in World War I in a valient effort to reach the "lost battalion." My paternal grandfather was at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, aboard the USS Utah. My maternal grandfather served in the airborne during WWII and received the Purple Heart three times. What a legacy they are to me.
Thank you to all who are currently serving our country. I am in your debt.
