  1. Good job Tanya!

    I too thank all of those who have served in the past, and those who are serving and giving their lives even as I type this.

    As you said Freedom is never free. We always try to thank those we see in uniform.

  2. I am not an American, but as a Canadian I am just as thankful for your armed forces as I am for my Canadian armed forces. May our two nations continue to stand beside each other and fight for freedom.

  3. What a blessing to have such honorable men in your family! I so appreciate their service and sacrifice to keep our country free.
