"Better to fight for something than live for nothing" -Gen George Patton . I remember the day I decided I had a deep respect for men willing to die for their country. I had picked up an old used book as a teenager called "Johnny Got His Gun". I grabbed it thinking it would be something totally different because there was a peace sign on the cover. It is an anti war novel....I didn't get that from it. I read this pain and dread and understood so many men throughout the history of humanity have felt this. They have lost body parts, senses, their minds, and their lives. And they would choose to keep doing it. Because some ideas are worth it. I am proud to be an American military wife. Remember those that have gone before us to protect and serve this great nation is something we should do every day of the year. Honor your heros. They gave, and continue to give you the freedoms others can only dream of. Some of them gave their lives.
