I'd like to take a moment to thank our vaunted defenders in our Armed Forces, in particular, the Marines I work with on a regular basis! Without the sacrifices that y'all have made, America would have never happened.
After all, what do you think the odds are that England would have granted us our independence if only, say, our poets were acting? Or our lawyers?
Okay, maybe the lawyers had a shot at it, but nobody fought as hard as our citizen soldiers did.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
