In regards to President Obama’s speech last night ending the war in Iraq, I would like to take some time and thank some very special people. Strong emotional ties with this war have kept our troops very dear to my heart, especially those I have had the pleasure of knowing personally. Even though only a small part of my life was spent with them, I am forever grateful. Their bravery, strength, positive attitudes, senses of humor and complete humility define them as true patriots. Patriots who have sacrificed more than we will ever understand. To every single person that has stepped foot on Iraqi soil as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, thank you. I will always have the utmost respect and genuine appreciation for your service.
