I was going to…

I was going to complain about how hot it is…but then I realized that:
1) It isn’t 115+ degrees
2) I’m not 7,200 miles from home
3) I’m not dressed in ACUs and helmet and carrying 70+ lbs.
4) There is very little chance that anyone will shoot at me or that I might drive over a bomb in the road today

Thanks to all who serve in our fine military!

I agree with him 100%. A good friend kept me balanced while on a tour in Iraq. He’d tell me about how it was 125° outside, and the things he was going through — and that really put it in perspective for me.

Take a moment today and thank a soldier. Doesn’t matter if they’re currently serving, or have served in the past. A cause that I give to at least once a month is Cup of Joe For A Joe.
