Hello Everyone, It seems to me that in today's world it is truly easy to harp on the negative aspects of our society. The things that bind us together seem to be lost. We all yearn for hope, solidarity, strength and the fact that we as a unit can propel some of those that would otherwise be left behind to position where they can accomplish great feats. This is only one example of the amazing possibilities for our human race. To all veteran's we thank you. To my brother Marine Persian Gulf War Veteran lCpl Miguel Macedo we thank you. For all of of our people that have seen combat we are grateful for the oppurtunity your sacrifices have created for us.
