A Thank You

Just a moment to sincerely thank my cousins Sergeant Wade Vakulick and Lieutenant Colonel Nate Nastase for their service to our country.

Wade just got back from a tour in Iraq, putting his life here on hold and heading to one of the most dangerous places in the world. Nate is there right now for a couple weeks to prepare for another tour later this year. Nate has been to Iraq numerous times now, including the first Gulf War.

I can't even fathom the sacrifices these men have made . Also, think about their families and what they go through, and how amazing it is they pull through it. Their wives, kids, parents, and siblings. Especially Eileen and Susan, - thank you so much as well! It is truly incredible the support they give.

Anytime you have a bad day, just try to remember what these soldiers and their families have done for us.

Regardless of one's perception of the war, I hope we all support the troops. Thanks, Jarod.
