This YouTube video brought a tear to my eye

I just saw this video for the first time today and I’m not ashamed to admit that it really affected me. Sometimes we forget just how much our military give of themselves to keep us safe. It’s easy to sit in our favorite cafĂ© and talk about how we should or shouldn’t be in this country or that, but politics isn’t the point here. We all have the right to our own opinions but a soldier’s life is a bit different. 

They also may not agree with a particular policy but when they are given an order to go, they go.
Our military does not have the luxury of making a choice, they follow orders and do it damn well if you ask me. The personal sacrifice that they make is unheralded and all in the name of freedom, our freedom. Whether you are a supporter of the current administration and its foreign policy decisions or not, remember one thing; presidents come and go but the military remains the same. I have always had a high regard for the men and women that serve us each and every day of their lives but even I was touched deeply by this short video and interview with U.S. Army Captain Sarah Cudd. Her determination and courage speak for themselves and there is nothing that I can say about her that the video doesn’t say much better.

GOD bless all of the men and women of our military and let this serve as a reminder that without their dedication and bravery I would not have the freedom to write and make public the blog that you are reading at this very moment.
