I would like to honor my Uncle Herman Jones, who recently returned from Iraq where he was a member of the team training Iraqi Police Officers

I also would like to honor my friends who have served this country,

I would like to honor John Savage, who I worked with at GetOnTheAir, who served as an Army Ranger in Iraq.

I honor my old school friend Josh Brown who I know currently serves this country, though I don’t know with which branch of the military.

I know there are many more to honor who have served or are serving, and I’m very sorry if I forgot you in this post. I am very proud of everyone who has served this country.  God bless all of you.

Thank you to everyone who served in the U.S. Military, not just those I’ve listed here, but every single man and woman who has put on a uniform.  I owe my safety and security in this country to the sacrifice you’ve given to us.
