I honor this man, my Father, who spent his life defending the principles of this country. I honor all the men who have served and given their lives to allow us the freedoms we hold so dear. My own paltry military service pales in comparison to those who have made the supreme sacrifice for these United States.
God bless your father.

Thanks for the post Cane. Looks like one hell of a soldier right there.

My brothers-in-arms that are no longer here would approve, I think.
C3 I approve as well as do the fallen who still watch over us. Sounds like you will have a great day with these guys.
