Thank you

(West Point, USMA)

When I lived in Italy for a semester, I had a wonderful Dutch roommate named Petra.  After we became close friends she told me that, before she met us, she thought Americans walked around with American flag t-shirts, always talking about how great the United States was and how much they loved the US of A.  (To be fair, I teased her that all Dutch people got high and wore wooden shoes.)

I am not an owner of an Old Navy flag shirt, and there are certainly things about the United States that I think could be improved upon.  But she was right about one part: I love my country.

And on today, Veterans Day, I am proud to honor those that served our country.  There are not enough words to express the gratitude owed to you for your sacrifice.  Thank you.


Thank you for your sweet comments. They make my day!
