Yet another facet of my character... For those of you who didn't know, I proudly served in the US Air Force. My Dad, a retired member of the Air Force, served in Viet-Nam. My brother, Steve, was a Marine, and my Step-Dad Harold, is retired Army, and now MY SON is serving in the USAF!! We are all proud to have served our country. We are definately a military family!!!
I've been think about a "Tribute" page for some time now ~ and after surfing the net for a few days I was inspired by some pages that I ran across. You'll find links to these pages below. So, for all of those who served I Salute You.......
We've all heard about the horrors of war.....but those that actually lived it deserve more that we could ever offer. My Father was one of those men. I never realized, until I was much older, how much my Dad gave up for me. He risked his own life to keep us ALL safe, to give us the freedom that many of us take for granted.
As for the women, and all those who served our country... I am proud to count myself amoung them. Even though I only served during times of peace, I know that today, I would still give my life for my country.
For those men and women still missing.....You are always in my prayers. Hopefully soon, they will all be home.
I am an American soldier. I am a member of the United States Military - a protector of the greatest nation on earth. Because I am proud of the uniform I wear, I will always act in ways creditable to military service and the nation it is sworn to guard. I am proud of my organization. I will do all I can to make it the finest unit in the Military. I will be loyal to those under whom I serve. I will do my full part to carry out orders and instructions given me or my unit. As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands for. No matter what situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country. I will use every means I have even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my military comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and the uniform. I am proud of my country and its flag. I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American soldier.
"God Bless America"
