These brave men and women deserve our gratitude and so much more. They will always have my respect and honor. They are so deserving of all that and more.
You are so very right. Unfortunately, too many don't want to remember what makes them uncomfortable and if we don't remember how can we respect those who lost their lives and how can we prevent such an atrocity happening again. Our military is vital to our well being and to our way of life. They deserve not just our respect but our deep and heartfelt gratitude. They have mine and always will have.
