As a retired member of the United States Air Force, I salute my fellow brothers and sisters in all the military services, past and present. Thank you, one and all, for your many sacrifices and efforts in making, and keeping, the United States of America the greatest nation on earth. Let it be known to all that the nationalism that lives deep in, most of, our souls is directly rooted in the freedoms which we love so dearly; the freedoms which our veterans valiantly won for us. Let us never forget their noble efforts!
