I recently found out that I had an ancestor in the American Revolution. His name was Jacob Woolley, he was a drummer and a fifer, and participated in battle in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He did not die in the war, but served until it was over. Then he married and had a family.
But when he enlisted at fifteen years old, he didn’t know he wasn’t going to die. He put his life on the line for what he believed, and was willing to risk everything for the sake of every other American.
That is why we need to give thanks to all the military men and women today and everyday. They put everything they have on the line for us and our freedom. There is nothing we can truly do to repay any of them, except to live our lives as true Americans and appreciate the freedom that they fight for.
Thank you to every member of the military and to your families. Because of you, your work, and all the sacrifices you make, we are able to live the American Dream.
Peace Love Profits
