Thanking the troops
In particular, this is a big weekend concerning our nation's military. Yesterday was the 230th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, the toughest group of men and women there is. And today is Veterans Day, a day to honor all of the men and women in uniform. Thank you all; in particular, special thanks to Todd Alvarez, my uncle, my grandfather, and my father, all for serving our nation in the past, now, and in the future. Truly, we do not deserve such heroes, and we are blessed to have people willing to give up their very lives just so the rest of us can live ours free of fear. Remember to keep them in your prayers, especially today.
