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.
