Happy Veteran's Day -- All Day, Every Day

Happy Veteran's Day to all the men and women who have fought to defend this wonderful country both here and overseas. I would like to especially thank my cousins Ryan and Dana who both were in the Marines. My cousin Dana, luckily did not have to fight in a war. More recently, my cousin Ryan served 2 tours of duty to the Middle East receiving 2 Purple Hearts, and currently lives in Pueblo, CO working as a sheriff. I love you guys! And thank you.
