About Me

I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

FED UP

I was watching the Today Show this morning and they had an article on what the first lady was wearing. It is a shame that we get more coverage on the first lady's clothing options then we do on our men and woman serving overseas. The article covered her wearing sleeveless dresses, she is a very pretty woman but let's get real here. She is not running our country and I think they should be focusing on what is going on in this world besides a sleeveless dress. We have men and woman dying and getting wounded and we don't hear about that. This war does not make the news anymore because it is not news and it should be. What about our soldiers in Afghanistan, you don't even hear about them. They are doing a great job and I believe the world needs to hear about that. Let's stop hearing all the bad news and let's start hearing some of the good news about what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan. There probably is a lot going on but we don't hear about it because it is good and the media just likes the bad. Well I am glad I can vent hear because I know I can and I really don't care what the first lady is wearing let's keep our troops safe and get them home when the job is done. We will always have a presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, that is what we are here for. I am glad that I serve and go where I am needed but let's get the good news out too. If you have any please let me know and post it for everyone to see. Thanks again for letting me vent and thanks for reading. I think I will go out today and wear something sleeveless.

A REAL HERO


I was thinking about all the men and woman who are so graciously serving there country. I think of what a hero is and you always think of them as someone who saved a life. Someone who sacrificed a lot for someone else and someone who gave there life for someone else. I really let that sink in and I realized a real hero is our men and woman in the military. They are over seas protecting us and saving our lives so we don't have to fight over here. They sacrifice a lot by leaving their families to serve our country and go far away so we are protected. They are sacrificing their own lives for us who are so comfortably living here in our own homes. A hero is someone who will do what he needs to to protect the ones he loves. I am so thankful for all the heroes we have serving our country and sacrificing their time and energy so we don't have too. Now this is not just for the soldier overseas this is for every soldier who puts on a uniform. To all my friends in uniform I salute you. Keep up the good work and come home safely.
