While many of us get caught up in our day to day task, we forget to take time out and be grateful for all of the blessing which are in our everyday lives. I too fall in this category, but today received an email, about our troops, which reminded me to be stop and enjoy the family and friends which make my life so blessed. I also wanted to pay some respect to those who have served or are serving our country.
The Military Oath
"I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support
and defend the Constitution of the United States
against all enemies foreign or domestic,
and I will bare true faith and allegiance to the same.
I will obey the orders of the President of the United States
and the officers appointed over me according to the regulations
and the Uniform Code of Military Justice...
So Help Me God."
THE PRICE OF FREEDOM IS NOT FREE
If you think about it we all have a family member or know someone who has served or is serving this great country of ours. Regardless of your opinions on war or U.S. foreign policy, I hope you take some time to show YOUR troops that you support them. Next time you see some one who has served our country, stop and shake their hand, simply tell them THANKS! While it is something very simple, you never know how much it means to the person receiving the Thanks.
