A great big salute to all those that are serving and have served our country. Over the years we have had many high school seniors follow the path to serve America, most have come back to lead productive lives building our community with family and friends.
However we also remember the handful of wonderful kids that left their lives abroad.
They will not experience the joy of watching their children grow up. They did not feel the rush when the SF Giants won the second World Series in three years. They cannot ever again hold and cherish those true and dear.
Take a moment to see how great we have it today. Even with all the chaos and uncertainty in the economy and world views, America still is the place to live and prosper.
