When there is something precious that you love in this world, it must be protected. Otherwise someone will surely take it from you. This is the reality of humans shaped by a history filled with conflict. Many a brave men and women in this country stand firm on the wall of protection that guards this country from those who wish to destroy our freedom and way of life. The United States of America flag flies high to this day in large part due to the security our armed forces provide. To all veterans past, present and future I want to express my deepest thanks. Your sacrifice does not go without immense admiration and much appreciation. For all members of our armed forces…thank you.
Secondly I want to thank Veterans Benefits GI Bill for nominating ColoradoCasters as one of their top blogs in 2011. I am amazed when my blog gets any accolades whatsoever but this award is extremely humbling for me. Truthfully it should be giving them an award as their sacrifices allow me to live and fish in this great country. I am proud to accept this award and even more proud to show my support for all veterans and armed forces of this country.
Once again, thank you.
