On this Independence Day, I would like to extend my heartfelt love and appreciation to my fellow veterans and my friends and family still on active duty.
The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. American soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in front of them...they fight because they love what's behind them.
To all those who have served and those still serving...you are my heroes. Thank you.
