Do you recall a time when someone
said they were proud of you? How did it make you feel? Did you stand a wee bit
taller? I know for myself the memory of my parents stating they were proud of me
made me want to do better each day. Have you ever taken it one step further and
thought what it means to be a proud American? As American citizens we live in a
democracy where we have freedom of speech and religion, the right to our own
opinion, freedom to choose where we want to live and work, and the opportunity
for an education. These freedoms do not just come along without sacrifice. The
United States military continually serves and protects the American citizens
from communist and terrorist beliefs allowing us to live the American dream of
freedom for all.
