What Are You Thankful for?

What are you thankful for this weekend? The extra day off work? Time with family and friends? Good BBQ and beer? Why do you think you get to enjoy these things? Because of the men and women who are willing to lay their lives on the line everyday to ensure your freedom.

On November 16th, 2012 SGT. Channing Bo Hicks was KIA in Afganistan. He was set to come home in just six short weeks. Bo spent his adult life doing what he loved and that was fighting for the rights and freedoms that you and I so enjoy.

This weekend be sure to take a moment to think about all of the brave men and women who have fought and continue to fight each day to preserve our liberties. Think about the men and women who have laid down their lives and those who are still here.

I challenge you to say thank you to a veteran next time you see one or buy his lunch. It would mean the world to him to know that what he has spent his life doing matters to those of us he has so selflessly protected.

“…all gave some, some gave all. Some stood through for the red, white and blue and some had to fall. If you ever think of me, think of all your liberties and recall, some gave all.”
-Billy Ray Cyrus, Some Gave All
