Thank you

"Thankful today for our founding fathers who pledged their lives, fortunes , and Sacred Honor for we who follow after and for all those who have worn the uniform to defend that pledge." Jimmian Yoder, wife of Fire Chief
I just wanted to pop in and say Thank you to all the men and women who have served our country to keep us free. My dear father-in-law, Floyd Hardwick. He served in the Korean Conflict, on a Navy Transport Ship, as well as on Guam. What a blessing he has been. The stories he's told, the influence he has had over so many. I'm thankful for this giant of a man for his willingness to serve all those years ago. There are many that we know through school, everyday life, church... They have been a great example for us in serving and protecting, but their families have given up so much as well... Thank you!
