I live just a few miles from Nellis Air Force Base here in Las Vegas now, I grew up with the base as my neighbor...literally. Planes and jets come and go all hours of the day and night. To some, it is an annoyance but I realize it is the sound of freedom and I don't mind. I get to watch the Thunderbirds as they practice routines and sometimes I swear I could reach out and touch them they fly over so close. I feel priviledged to see them so often.
I have friends that are in the military, some are retired too. My father, uncles, and grandfathers, and father in law all served our country as well. I want to say 'THANK YOU' for your time, integrity, devotion, pride, service and sacrifice. They seem like such simple words but I want you all to know they come with great emotion and thought.
