Remember all the vets who have gone before us who died for our freedom and remember the active duty soldiers and the vets who are trying to adjust to being home after going through a lot of things we could never imagine. Thank you for your service.

This is Corporal Sandy Levit. She was recently killed in action in Afghanistan when she tried to rescue a wounded ranger pinned down by insurgents. She didn't hesitate when she tried to save his life. She believed that his life was more valuable than hers and put herself in immediate danger. Acts of heroism and brotherhood are what society needs.

To all veterans out there past and present, thank you for the sacrifices you've made so I can live in a free country. God bless you and God bless America!

The United States flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The United States flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. Thank you all for your sacrifice.
