Thank you to all I was privileged to serve with. Every duty station I served at, I left a better person than when I arrived. I like to think we brought out the best in each other.
Thanks to the active duty service men and women.
Thanks to the families of service people. All too often, they are called to sacrifice at the “above and beyond” level.
And a special salute to grunts. Slogging through jungles and mud or sand dunes and crowded cities to root out terrorists, that’s still where wars are won and lost.
