It is important to always remember that, while our military may seem like a distant, huge working force, it is made up of individuals. Individuals with families, emotions, hobbies and favorite sports teams. Because of this, we can understand their fears and appreciate their calling.
Service members, maybe more than most, understand what it means to be a citizen and hold it to the highest regard. Most of us will never serve in a military position, but acting as citizens together, we can protect and serve for the sake of our freedom.
