It's people like you that make our Country beautiful. Thanks for your dedication. My family has a history of service men/woman (grandfather, father, brother-in-law, niece, 3 nephews, 2 cousins) and if I could do it all over again, I would join. Kudos to you. I'm glad your home safe with your family. God bless you and God Bless America!
