I will second everything slayR said. Thank you to all those that have made the sacrifices so that we can have the freedoms and liberties we do. A special thanks also goes out to the families of these great people. Without their love and support we would not be able to do what we do!
And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
"I served in the United States Navy"
