I also want to thank Kasey Garrison and Steven Garrison for being so kind as to keep a eye on the toad for when I was coming by and to bring me a Gatorade and some water! I can’t thank you enough! I had went all day without a single place to stop so I was ready for something move and cold! Kasey, coming from a navy family as well, I want to thank you for showing interest in serving our country as well! The Navy would be proud to have you some day if you decide that path!
To my vets:
Most days I talk about being down and out, and trying to find our way back.
Today I just want to say thank you for your service. Thank you for doing what less than 1 percent will ever do. Thank you for giving up your time, energy, mind and body to a country like ours. Even though not every understands and not everyone supports you. You are the reason they are here today having the rights to do what they do. You are the reason we have our freedoms. Thank you to my brothers and sisters, to the moms and dads that had to leave their families, to the sons and daughters that left home, thank you for riding your hand and taking an oath that never ends and last a lifetime. Thank you for fighting for the red, white, and blue. You are the people that matter most in this world, not the celebrities, not those that don’t know a days worth of hard work, but each and every one of you veterans are the backbone and foundation of this great country. Be proud of who you are! Not many can stand beside you and say they know the feeling to put that uniform on.
