Today I am thankful for all the people who have ever served in our nation’s armed forces. They did provide and are providing the blanket of security under which I sleep (or try to) each night. Each time I see a person in uniform, I make it a point to thank them for serving. I never know how they may have been treated that day, so I want to make sure that I am cognizant of their sacrifice. I wish that today’s young people were getting a truly sound foundation in history, both American and European. “If we don’t learn from history, we will be doomed to repeat it”.
