I think there are a lot of things I could try to say. I won't. There are only a few things that I get teared up about, and my feelings for my country are one of them. I love my country. May we remain free.
I would like to thank my grandpas on both sides of my family, who served their country in the Korean and Viet-Nam wars. They are both patriots who love their country, and have proven it. My hat is off to you both.
