My dad served in the Air Force after dental school. We were fortunate he was never deployed to Vietnam and our family was able to stay together throughout his service. This is the only picture I could find of me with my dad in his uniform.
I’m so thankful for the men and women who serve our country in the armed forces. The little girl you see in the picture was very proud her daddy was in the United States Air Force. I have many memories of living on the base, but there’s one thread that is woven through each one: Everyone was proud to be an American, warts and all.
It’s so easy to focus on all that’s wrong with our great country, but there are still many amazing things that are right about the United States of America. They’re the things worth fighting for.
I’d love to hear from you. What do you think is great about America?
I hope you have an opportunity to thank our service men and women for all they do to keep America safe and strong.
May God continue to be a guiding light for our future and may His people be a source of America’s strength, wisdom and love for the world.
