They Were Soldiers, They Are Kin

As I have plugged away at my Family History I have found many hero's. But none that could ever fill a soldier's boot.
I have a very strong love and devotion to my country, these United States of America. I know it's in my blood as it was in their blood. I would like to honor all my ancestor's who fought in the many war's through out the generations of our beloved land. 

 My ancestors have fought in every war our Country has seen.

These are only a few brave ancestors who stopped their lives for years to go fight with the understanding they may never return home or see their loved ones again. 
That's a scary ordeal.

Because they gave their lives for me
I will say The Pledge of Allegiance to our FLAG, I will treat it with respect and I will shake hands with every man that wears a uniform serving our Country and thank them.
