I attended the Future Warriors dinner the other night at the Three Rivers Convention Center honoring all local graduating high school seniors who have committed to serve our country.
It was an honor to show support for these young servicemen and servicewomen and their families for their decision to serve in our military.
My son is currently deployed in Afghanistan as a member of the Army. I am proud of his decision to serve his country, and the decision by so many of our young men and women to serve in these difficult times.
Never miss a local story.
The organizers of this dinner did a fabulous job putting this together. It was truly a special event. To all the new enlistees, current members of our Armed Forces, veterans, and their families, thank you for your service and sacrifice. Freedom is not free. We must never forget that.
