Today I am thankful for the military. I have the freedom of sleeping in my nice warm bed, going wherever I please, read what I want, watch what programs I want. I can go to whatever church I please or not. I have the freedom to enjoy all these things because soldiers will leave their nice warm beds, their families, to make sure I keep my freedom. While I am sitting down to a nice Thanksgiving dinner there will soldiers away from home fighting for my freedom. While I am sitting around the Christmas tree with my family there will be soldiers giving up that pleasure just to give me that freedom. So today I say thank you to every military person, active or vet. I say thank you to each member of their family. Today I am thankful we have soldiers ready to put their family lives on hold so America can stay the land of the free.
