Today it was my extreme honor and privilege to cast my ballot free of oppression or coercion. As I approached the voting booth, I became overwhelmed with a sense of deep appreciation and duty, my thoughts went to images of soldiers on battlefields from Valley Forge, to Gettysburg, to France in two World Wars, to the beaches of Normandy, to the frozen forrests of the the Ardennes and North Korea. From the sweaty jungles of Vietnam to the burning sands of Afghanistan and Iraq, these citizens have killed, blead, and died for the promise of freedom for themselves and future generations.

I, a regular civie, have the previlege of growing up, living my life and raising my children with all of the benefits and rights of a free man having paid no price for it. The price of freedom is a heavy cost, and each generation is responsible to carry their portion. I have never been more proud to be an American and to have fellow citizens that have answered the call of a nation in wartime and peace to carry that load. It is with extreme honor and respect that I say thank you to all our service men and women.

For all the vets out there....

Golden Corral's Fourth Annual
2004 Military Appreciation Monday
Free dinner to our nation's military, past and present
To show our thanks
Monday Night November 15, 2004 from 5-9PM

Veterans' Day honors our military personnel, past and present, for their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. All 400+ Golden Corral restaurants spanning 39 states join together once again to offer these patriots a Free "Thank-you" Dinner Buffet on Monday Night November 15th from 5-9PM.

The offer is based on the honor system, no ID required; members of U.S. Reserves and National Guard are included in this special recognition offer.

Once again the Disabled American Veterans Organization with 2.3 million disabled veterans, their families and survivors, will have members in the restaurants to distribute literature, sign up new members and volunteers, and accept donations in support of the DAV.

An estimated 252,000 veterans attended last year helping this event raise over $241,000 for the DAV

supersix4,

You are much more than "a regular civie." By exercising your right to vote, and voting for the values this great nation represents, you have made an incredible contribution.

Your contribution makes my 20 years in the military that much more worthwhile.

Thank you.

It doesn't take a battle front to maintain freedom. The vote you cast today does that.

So thank you, sir for exercising your rights and promoting the democratic ways of our republic.
