I simply wanted to take this time out to salute our soliders moving forward into 2009. As I was travelling through Atlanta airport again a few days ago and watched Humanity pass by, I watched the best of us come and go.
I had a five hour layover and made a point to shake as many soldier hands as possible; chat where plausible; and always thank them. Our Men and Women come across many backgrounds and ages; and relative creeds and colors. But when it matters…when it matters…they, and I…and most here, see eye to eye. God Bless the Troops.
I, personally, never served. But for those who have here, I’d like to express my personal thanks.
